    That guy on the far right looks like he does not want to be there. Laughing

    Interesting uniform, Gilles!

    Namibian shirts are easy to get but the trousers are as rare as pigeons teeth!! Anyone have any other views?

    I feel sorry for that poor man! He is basically wearing the equivelant of a suit in the hot African sun! That has to be uncomfortable!

    Don't let it bother you. Most black Africans I've dealt with would be just comfortable in it. They are more attuned to the heat than lower temps. I've seen them bundled up like they were on a polar expedition as I walk around comfortably in t-shirt, shorts and sandals.

    Yup. Around here it often gets to -10f in the winter, sometimes -20f and much lower with wind factored in. No problem for me. If we get a sudden burst of warmer air from the Gulf and it goes to above 32f it feels tropical. I've seriously done things outside in a T-shirt with it being just about freezing. Yet someone from a even a little further south would be dressed like I am at -10.
