Just wanted to let you all know that Shannon and I are safely back in Opuwo. I have to say that there has been tons going on in the past few days and I’ll most certainly tell you all in about it. Patience is all you need as I go through the hundreds of pictures… Continue reading Back in the Saddle Again
Month: June 2008
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… Continue reading Spoiled
Just had my first hot shower in a while…easily ranks in the top 5 showers ever. Don’t take your hot showers for granted.
Raining in Windhoek
Raining in my hotel room that is. It was a nice surprise to see so much water…too bad it was all over my bed. New room please. Oh…no water because of a pipe burst? That’s ok. I wasn’t looking forward to a hot shower since I haven’t had one in a month or more. So… Continue reading Raining in Windhoek
Where are the Games?
This is the question that everyone around the office has been asking me lately. I tell them that they should not be playing games at work. For many, it’s the first time they have spoken to me. I asked a group of people to tell me why they think games should be on the computers. … Continue reading Where are the Games?
NASA has just confirmed that there is ice on Mars which means water. I wonder if they can bring some of that to Opuwo. It has now officially rained twice since I arrived in April. My eyeballs are drying out.
Ring ring, ring ring, ring ring, ring ring, ring ring, ring ring…Anyone going to get that? Doesn’t the person on the other end realize no is going to pick up? Ring ring, ring ring, ring ring, ring ring…Doesn’t anyone work in this office? Come on people, I’m trying to work here! Good times Namibia.
I now have a regular visitor ever since I began putting my tuna cans out after lunch. I haven’t come up with a name yet. I think once I can get within 20 feet I’ll start thinking about it. Any ideas?
Bike Tires are like Onions
They stink sometimes, can make you cry and tend to go flat too often. Not sure what I meant by a flat onion, but I’m becoming used to flat tires. The day following the overnight at the plateau, Ed, Jeff and myself hightailed it back to where we had just been for some riding.… Continue reading Bike Tires are like Onions
If You Want Something Done…
I did it myself. Internet is back online. Now if I can just remember what happened in the past few days that I wanted to write about.
Man down, man down
My online silence is not due to my lack of things to report, rather my DSL has died. Let’s hope I get this thing fixed within the next month.
Sunday afternoon I had a couple little visitors outside my house. Two young kids were going through my trash. Normally, I might have found this strange or would have told them to stop, but this isn’t that strange to me anymore. They made their rounds in my neighborhood and I only asked that they put… Continue reading Trashcapades
Do I Have Car?
My big brother poses an interesting question – “Do you have a car now? or are all of you splitting a car?” No, I do not have a car and after what happened in Kenya, I don’t believe I will ever buy a car on the continent of Africa again. Let’s hope I can use… Continue reading Do I Have Car?
So it’s Friday night in Opuwo and I’m hanging out with Ed and Jeff from Peace Corps. We get in some games of poker…I’m terrible…and beer pong…can’t lose. They say they’re going out to the plateau tomorrow to do some camping so I’m naturally in for this. It’s just outside of town and I see it… Continue reading The Plateau
Onjuva – Day Two
Onjuva – Day Two So night time hits and the new tent is up, my new sleeping bag is rolled out, my belly is full of good food and sleep is right around the corner. I notice it’s a little chilly out, but the sleeping bag should cure that soon enough. Crawl into my bag… Continue reading Onjuva – Day Two
