Not only have I managed to have a few hot showers, but I have managed to completely reimmurse myself back into western life in the few days I have been in Windhoek. Sushi, Pizza, Indian Food, Taxis, Movie Theaters, Shopping Centers…it’s been nice. Strange thing is, I really could live without these things. Yes, they are enjoyable, but not really what I need. Part of the allure of these things is being able to experience them seldomly…they’re luxuries. I’ve been able to find new appreciation for the everyday pleasures I once had. I know that as soon as I get back to the U.S. I will quickly lose the appreciation, but I won’t lose the experience. It’s something everyone should try ever so often. Put yourself out there, get out of your comfort zone and then maybe you might find out what makes your life so great.
Now if I could just convince myself to give up on all forms of electronic communication…that would be a real trip. But then how could I share everything with you?
