Merry Christmas Eve!

It's Christmas Eve, and even though I am missing my family greatly, I am in good spirits.

In my Peace Corps service, I am regularly getting to face my demons. Sometimes they bring me down for a while, but in the end they are the ones going down town. As for right now, they are all mostly down town for the holidays. :-)

In just a few months, my parents are coming to visit me. I am very excited for their visit. I am excited to see them, and their reaction to Namibia and its people. I am hoping it will be a life changing event for them.

I am feeling more and more at home in my community, and I feel like I have many friends here. Now if I could just find some snow and a decorated Christmas tree.

Happy Holidays, and a Joyful New Year!

We could use the snow here in the Northeastern US, where it has so far been a year without winter. How well I remember Namibia during the long rains and hope you are getting your share south of Windhoek. My time in country was over a 4 year period (1990-1992 and again 1996-1998) but in Grootfontein, Omusati, and at Khoadi Hoas conservancy up in Kunene province. Wishing you the very best in that remarkable land.
