My Namibian Home

It’s been over 2 months since my arrival in Namibia. I can truly say that it has FLOWN by! I’m pretty settled into my new home now. For the first 6 weeks or so I was travelling in and out of Khorixas quite a lot for various VSO things so it took a bit of time for me to settle in but now regular travelling has ended so I am feeling at home here. Work is going quite well. (I’ll try to write a blog post about it at some point.) My co-workers are very nice; I’ve made friends with a few of the ladies in the office. I’ve also met some Peace Corps volunteers in town. So all in all everything is great!

I’d like to show you all around my new home so I’ve posted a tour of Khorixas and my house on my picasa page. Come visit!

Namibian Long Weekend
