Well....the time is getting near to say goodbye to Namibia.
I am in my final weeks of service here in Keetmanshoop. I have about two more weeks of work and hopefully if all goes well, a grand opening for the community garden on the 8th of March. I plan to leave Keetmanshoop for good on the 9th or 10th of March and then head to the capital for a week. During that time I will close out my bank account, get a final medical check, etc. It will also be a chance to see and say goodbye to 7 other volunteers who are also leaving that week.
On Saturday morning, March 16th, I will say goodbye to Namibia as I board a plan and head to S. Africa and from there, to India. I plan to spend two weeks in India followed by two weeks in Thailand. I thought it would be nice to be a tourist for a while before coming home (spend some time in an Ashram...yoga and meditation......some snorkeling in Thailand.....just some time to reflect on my time in Namibia and get my head around coming back home after being away for two years).
I just wanted to write one last time and say thank you to those of you who have read this blog and kept up on my life in Namibia as a Peace Corps Volunteer. I know it wasn't necessarily juicy or exciting....as I left a lot of things out that I just didn't think would be fit to share. Nevertheless, I thank you for reading and being a part of my experience.
I believe this will be my final blog as these last weeks are getting busy and soon my time as a volunteer will be over.
I think of all of you more than you know and hopefully I'll run into some of you when I'm back in the states. Not sure where I'll settle down once I'm home. Maybe Arizona and maybe elsewhere....that is still to be determined.
All the best to all of you!
Take care and be well,
