Someone requested more photos of food…

Is this celebratory smiley too graphic?

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.

  1. What animal is that?
    Since it seems like the Namibian diet is pretty meat-centric, what foods are you eating?
    Hope you’re settling in to your new home and are received well in Arandis and at your new post.

    1. Hi! I hope you’re well! A “smiley” is a sheep’s head contorted into its namesake by the heat of the open flame grill. Braai (BBQ) is Namibia’s national cuisine and vegetarians are rare here, but tolerated. There are plenty of meatless alternatives for when I cook for myself. When I’ve been served by others, however, my 23-year streak of not eating meat has been broken… My new community has welcomed me with open arms and I’m enjoying learning more about them!
