It’s been an exciting first semester here in Angola. We’ve enjoyed our new jobs, met many interesting people and have experienced a bit of Africa. All in all, we are very happy here! Check out the sunset we had on the night of our staff Christmas party. Beautiful!
Now we are off on another adventure for our Christmas holiday, a Namibian safari! We will be game viewing in Etosha National Park where the large mammals are seen in their natural habitat. Then, up into the Damara desert to see the rare desert Elephant, followed by some time in the charming German-influenced coastal town of Swakopmund. We will be there for Christmas so we hope to have access to internet and will try to call/email loved ones. Next, we’ll visit spectacular sand dunes in Soussvlei in southern Namibia and finally a few days in the capital city, Windhoek. Namibia was colonized by the Germans and is said to be exremely organized, an easy place to travel and they make lots of great beer. It sounds like we can’t go wrong!
We’ll try and blog a bit during the trip if possible, but if we can’t….we’d like to wish everyone a very happy holiday season and best wishes for a fun-loving new year!!! Love ya, Mara and Rodrigo
