The time changed this weekend by moving an hour ahead so the result is that it is now a 6 hour time difference between Eastern Standard Time and Opuwo time. Plan accordingly.
Kunene Camping Trip – Day Four
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
Opuwo Made Famous…Again
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?
Don’t Want It? Put It Outside
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.

It is extremely dry and mild. The temperature is in the mid-70s (F)… Continue reading Question: What’s the Weather Like in Opuwo?
Opuwo vs. The Outside World
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
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.
Unbeknownst to me, but knownst to others, Monday, May 26, is Africa Day. You may say, ‘Surely You Jest’ but I say nay. Tis truly a holiday. A little research shows that it commemorates the 1963 founding of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU)…that’s organisation with an ‘S.’ Don’t say I never taught you anything… Continue reading Africa Day
