Experiences of a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer in Namibia (2016-19) and further adventures…
Day of sightseeing in Windhoek
We spent last Saturday exploring various sites in and around the nation’s capitol, Windhoek:
Heroes Acre national cemetery.
The Grove shopping mall.
Old Location Cemetery at site where signs of South Africa’s apartheid regime are still evident.
Katatura (meaning “the place where we don’t want to go”) – the district where Windhoek’s blacks were relocated during apartheid.
Single Quarters open-air market where traditional food and drink are prepared and sold.
Independence Memorial Museum with impressive galleries commemorating the country’s struggle for freedom from German, British and South African rule.
Here are some images from our tour…
Until 2019, I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Namibia focused on Community Economic Development. Before that, I was a high-tech executive, small business owner, consultant and business broker.
