Photographer's Note

Probably the most iconic landmark in Windhoek, Christ church dominates the city skyline beautifully.

While searching information about that building, I've found these two funny anecdotes on Wikipedia.

"During a confirmation service in the 60's, the clapper of the main bell came loose, smashed through the window and fell on the street. Window bars were installed in reaction to this".

"The colorful stained lead glass windows in the sanctuary were a gift from Emperor Wilhelm II. In the late 1990s a tourist noticed that all of them were installed with the sun protection on the inside. In the two years following this discovery, all window elements were restored and turned around.
