Last night we enjoyed our first taste of Windhoek Lager with some wonderful Peace Corps Trainees (PCTs). The worst part of our journey so far was the time in airports and on the ‘equipment.’ Too many hours in the air and in the security lines. Our PC Namibia welcome and hospitality has been very warm and encouraging. Our dorm rooms are comfortable, the food served in the dining hall is back home quite good. Best of all, the people – staff and PCTs – are fabulous. Monday we begin Week Two and meet our host families. The next day we move in with our host families for the remaining 8 weeks of training here in Okahandja. So, all is well with Barbara and me. A special THANK YOU to all of the friends and relatives who have been so supportive, and for the numerous send-off parties and gatherings. You are all dear to us and we look forward to seeing you again.
