I came to the realization some time ago that if I have my plant inside that it’ll never be pollinated and thus no tomatoes. Dad, please put my coffee plant outside…I believe this might be why my plant is 4 years and have nothing thus far. Any way…I’ve been watching the plant closely and it’s… Continue reading We Have Tomatoes People!!!

For all those youngster readers out there, beer should be enjoyed while cold.
That’s right folks. At the junction of C41 and C43 there is a telephone pole down for some repairs. Watch out for those big trucks with high clearance requirements as you can expect some delays. Sure…you could always just drive through the market and go around the OK, but what fun would that be? Actually…probably… Continue reading Opuwo Breaking News: Telephone Pole Down
It’s been so long not sure what happened on day 4. Day Four I believe this was the day we woke up in Palmwag and drove back to Opuwo. We headed north on a rough road and made our way through Sesfontein. I listened to a lot of music, we took a lot of detours… Continue reading Kunene Camping Trip – Day Four

It’s been about two weeks since this day so could be a little hazy. Day Three Woke up that night to windy wind. Sounded like the trees above my tent were going to blow over.

Opuwo bread does not have preservatives. What does this mean? Day one…this is the best bread you’ve ever had, it’s warm, soft and tasty. Day two…still pretty darn good. Day three…marginally edible. Day four…didn’t I buy bread because this has a slight taste of terrible and dry. Day five…I have created a science experiment. Day… Continue reading Preservatives
A NY Times article here talks about Opuwo. This is where I live and work and may provide an alternative and perhaps socially more reputable point of view. But I ask you, what is more reputable that my point of view exactly?
That’s right. If you feel that you want something to magically disappear all you have to do is put it outside. Shirt, shoes, pans, bikes…whatever…just put it outside. This is the secret code message for please take me away as fast as possible for the owner clearly does not want me anymore. I’m pretty fortunate… Continue reading Don’t Want It? Put It Outside
Apparently it’s that time of year in Opuwo where things start to get warmer…mark it on your calendars. Clouds have returned for an almost daily appearance since last Friday. Personally, I kind of liked the cold nights, warm days and cloudlessness that was my Opuwo. It’s even a little warm in my place as I… Continue reading It’s Gettin Hot(ter) In Here
That’s right. I did it. Dracula and Death tag team were no match for my twirly bible and vampire killer whip. They talked a big game, but at the end of the day they lost like the rest of them…Frankenstein…dead…Werewolf…dead…Medusa…dead…strange big guy with brain popping out of his head…dead. Only problem…now what am I supposed… Continue reading Castlevania Conquered

Day Two This morning was some of the best weather I’ve had here so far. Brisk and breezy…very nice. We packed up early and were off for… Continue reading Kuene Camping Trip – Day 2
It’s Saturday and with little to do today I figured I’d get outside and try my luck at the bike trail that I failed at so miserably last time. This time I planned ahead, spacer, extra tube, pump, multi-tool and water. All preparations made I headed off for the trail. Let me tell you, this… Continue reading Goat Trail Bike Ride
My go-to supermarket here has been out of water for more than a week. I’ve resorted to reducing water intake and upping Sprite intake. Now, this is probably not the best idea so today I decided to expand my shopping horizons. Agra, the agricultural supply store, low and behold, had 5 liter jugs just sitting… Continue reading OK Runs Out of Water

I woke up on Friday morning to a bit of surprise, it was kind of dark outside. My original thought was that I had somehow tragically awoken hours before I was supposed to. A quick check of the clock and nope, right on time. Hmmmm. I looked outside and the image you see is what… Continue reading Clouds in Opuwo? Say It Ain’t So
