I’m bored sometimes…ok?
I’ve turned over a new leaf in my life over the past couple of years and look positively on most things. Volunteering in general I’m positive about, it’s a great experience, you learn a lot and you help if you can. The last one bears a very important word…IF. If is a funny thing. If… Continue reading Frustration = Volunteering
Let me tell you a thing about water. It makes our plants grow, it washes our clothes and dishes, it is used in cooking and it sometimes gets the stink off of me if I use enough soap. Now, without water, all these things become somewhat difficult. Not impossible, just difficult. As I mentioned in… Continue reading Water
The beloved Casio watch from the 80s has taken a turn for the worst. As you can see it has turned from mostly legible to gobbly gook. Amazingly unfortunate of me, I managed to set the alarm in its current state and get to listen to the soothing sounds of ‘beep, beep….beep, beep’ nightly around… Continue reading Watch Woes
I’ve officially decided that driving from Windhoek to Opuwo does not equal fun. It takes at least 7 hours…I think that’s about the best and only reason I can give for my views. Today’s trip involved the abrupt end of a small bird’s life, the near death of a long-tailed sheep, questions regarding my political… Continue reading Return to Opuwo
Shannon left last night and is now sitting in London awaiting her return trip to Cincinnati. Time really flew by on that one. She nearly didn’t make her flight last night due to a slight change in the flight time…next time I need to figure out how to make it so she actually misses the… Continue reading 4 Weeks Already!
Flutie, you’re out! This is truly what is worth your morning delight! No worries…I’ve already patented the intricate process of cheese on egg on bread and even the pattern has been copyrighted. We open for business upon return to Opuwo.
Today marks Shannon’s final day in Opuwo. Tomorrow we’ll be figuring out a way to get down to Windhoek by Thursday. This journey should prove for some interesting stories, but I’m hoping it’s easier sailing than not. Best part was that we had a potential ride this morning, but no one cared to inform me… Continue reading Final Day in Opuwo
A certain someone was awesome enough to bring the good stuff with her. Now, I won’t name names, but thanks to this little bitty tonight’s dinner was definitely within the top 3. If only she had brought more than one can…only kidding. Skyline has definitely gone global this time.
Just thought about something the other day. The average person in the world really has no idea what is going on in the world, nor do they care. What they care about is that they have some food to eat and a place to sleep. 5 liter plastic bottles seem to be the highlight of… Continue reading Opuwo vs. The Outside World
Some exciting developments have come into being since Shannon’s arrival and I’ve just been enjoying the company enough to not really care too much about blogging…sorry. So I’ll just go ahead and throw these out there as they have definitely changed things around here for the better: 1. Dart Board. A real Unicorn dartboard with… Continue reading Better Late Than…Well, I’m Just Late On These
We had to make an early start as today we had to drive from Swakopmund to Etosha…roughly 600 km. Did we get an early start? No. We woke up around 8, had a nice breakfast while planning our travels and readied our music collection. We knew we had to drive north so that was a… Continue reading Travels: June 30th – Etosha Here We Come
That’s right. Corn on the cob in the desert. Yesterday we found the store stocked full of goodness that included, corn, sugar peas, strawberries, guava, leeks, spinach and other fine dining items. It was a little slice of heaven.
Shannon and I were hanging out on the porch this afternoon and we discovered something miraculous. A tomato plant was growing near one of my trees. I’m not sure how it is still alive, but we quickly dug that bad boy up and put it in an old water container. Fresh tomatoes for everyone!
After a nice, relaxing morning in Walvis Bay we decided to take things up a notch…at least our travel agent felt like we should. Next up was Desert Explorers ATV excursions. Shannon and I started things off right with a bag of Mild Chili and Sour Cream Doritos and a can of Fanta, oh yeah.… Continue reading Travels: June 29th – Desert Explorers
