Sharing this beautiful land…

My love made it to southern Africa over the holiday break in December, when I was able to show her why I love it here in Namibia. We started with a few days in South Africa, then flew to Namibia where we saw many of the iconic cultural and natural aspects that one should see on a first visit: wild animals (large and small), the dunes and the sea.

I hope you enjoy some of the photos we collectively took.

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. Fantastic photos of a beautiful land. Thanks for sharing them with us. I especially love the cool little gecko thing that you were holding in your hand.

  2. Thanks for sharing the fabulous photos. So enjoy sharing your experience through your posts.
    Just got these photos now in May — did I miss news somewhere? I’ve been thinking of you as I thought your two years in the Peace Corps was ending in April or thereabouts and was wondering doing what/where life was taking you next. Did you extend your time?
    Blessings to you and all your endeavors,

    1. Hi, Melanie! Yes, I’ve been very busy here so am quite behind in my postings. The standard Peace Corps term of 27 months ends next month (June 2018) for my Group 43. My colleagues are now in the middle of their final wrap-up activities at site and (for some) training the next batch of newly-arrived American trainees in Group 47.

      For me… I will be extending my service in Arandis until the end of the year, returning to California in early December 2018. With any luck for spare time, I’ll pick up my pace of posts soon, to help explain what I’ve beeen doing – including some coverage of my work!

  3. Aloha Chris! Once again, first rate photos of a an exotic and beautiful specimen! I hope you have many happy years together! Please tell her I said she is a lucky woman.
    Meanwhile excellent Africa photos! When you are done with the Peace Corps you should carry on as a travel writer/photographer!
    That long-legged lizard standing in the palm of your hand is about the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. I can’t wait to share the photo with my son- who used to work at the Portland Zoo and loves all kinds of animals.
    Stay safe! Peace, Mark
