Time to get away!

I look forward to getting out of the classroom as we all leave for a few days to shadow our host volunteers around the country. I’ll be with Andy, in Windhoek, only about 45 minutes away – some of my colleagues will be on the road for the entire day.

It’s been a long time in the classroom. While we appreciate the learning, we’re all anxious to venture out from our PST nest and spread our wings.

For me, I’ve missed my Sunday morning hikes with my love and hope to climb Pride Rock again soon. It’s the only trail we’ve found in the area – but it’s a good one. Perhaps next weekend.

Namibians often walk, sometimes great distances each day, but they aren’t particularly known to be hikers. For everyone, here and at home, I’d like to share this article about the benefits of hiking.

This town of 22,000 people has been our home for the past 5 weeks. The residents have been very gracious as our circus has rolled through.

Up out of town, we can appreciate the great expanses of this vast land.
