This morning a group of PCTs hiked to the reservoir that serves Okahandja and Windhoek and is about 5k away. It was excellent exercise partly because of the loose sand (which will quickly eat up your leather and rubber soled shoes]. The camaraderie was much appreciated. This is a fabulous group! The reservoir is in the background. Barbara went to church while I was hiking and she enjoyed the singing….AND dancing! Then she did some yoga with Kim and about ten others before lunch. Last night we had Kudu or Oryx for dinner. It was tender and very lean. Looking forward to more! Monday we begin language and culture training and meet our host families. Tuesday we move in with the families for the rest of our training. Soon we will know something about our assignments and future location. Did I mention that the weather is very nice, but you have to wear a jacket at night and dress warmly for breakfast. After 10:00 AM everyone strips back down to manage the 75-80F. Sunny with a light breeze all day. Yes, it is nice, but, man, do they need rain here!
