Clouds rollin' in...

Here is a panoramic view right outside the fence of my homestead...looking EAST. The sun is setting in the west, the clouds are rolling in, and there is some rain in the distance...where you see rainbows...

An amazing site, on a quiet evening before the storm....

And I'm so grateful to be here!

0-140km/h in 2 months.....

Wow - I just realized how long it's been since I've updated this blog. Sorry 'bout that! 

To be honest, it's been up and down a bunch....but luckily, we are on the up-swing right about now! I have alot to say, and am finally getting all of my thoughts together - AND pictures. Because of this slow internet, that is what takes the longest....

So, bear with me - I'm just getting everything organized and put together...and then I'll post! But I wanted you to know that all is well, here in Namibia :) And I have gone from not much work, to a TON of irons in the fire! So, I plan on staying pretty busy, and hopefully will have lots of amazing things happening, in the next 6 months....

A few of the irons include: Permagardens all around the village, AIDS Awareness concert, the building of a maternity ward, and health clubs all around Namibia, Girls' Club at the school, AIDS/Health club at the school, Grassroots Soccer. Oh, as well as applying for a few different international HIV/AIDS conferences - 1 in Spain (!) and 1 in Melbourne, Australia. And these will, hopefully, just be the beginning.....

On a side note, I'm excited about my Christmas and New Year's this year! We get 2 weeks off during that period, and I am going to be volunteering at N/a'an ku se Foundation - wildlife conservation organization and Neuras - where there is a lot of research on these wild animals, including tracking and helping them return to the wild. Neuras also is 1 of  3 wineries in Namibia - which is exactly where I will be to kick off the New Year! Not to shabby, I'd say.....

Anyway, know that I am in the process of writing and updating everything, and will post as soon as I can....

Miss you all

In peace & love,
Ndapandula
