Moose McGregor’s Desert Bakery

Travelling often reminds me of a quote from some old stiff* – “Pleasure is very seldom found where it is sought. Our brightest blazes are commonly kindled by unexpected sparks.”


This was amply demonstrated by a homely truck stop we visited in the Namib Desert the other morning while I was still wiping the sleep and sand from my eyes.

 

 

 

 

 

Charmed on arrival by their cervine sign, I was seduced by their apple pie and coffee.

 

 

 

 

 


But I still don’t understand who is buying the 150 to 200 kg of apple pie every day.

* the stiff in question being Samuel Johnson
