Low season and Cpt. Somatiko gone

After the immense flying of the last couple of months (70+ hours in average) December brought the low season. But the nice weather - well, sometimes -, and the family really makes me forget about not flying every day. And grabbing a few hours every two-three days is a good way to stay in shape...
Swakopmund is filling up with people and the little sleepiness that characterizes the town most of the year is gone. Summer is here and the café's are full of tourists. The preparations for Christmas has started as well. Funny if you are used to have cold and snow this season.
In the meantime, my good friend Cpt. Somatiko has left the Bush Birds. Here's his last visit to the airport. Posing with Andreas our hangar boy and FUN. Take care my friend!

And a couple of shots I took the last weeks.
