As I write this post, I am sitting at the kitchen table in my new Namibian home. After much encouragement from my mom, I requested a move a couple weeks ago. The cockroach problem wasn’t getting any better and the living arrangement was really getting me down. So I have moved to another volunteer house in Nankudu, which is one village west of Sitopogo and approximately 2km from school.
The house in massive. There are three bedrooms, an office, a laundry room (with a washing machine!!!), kitchen and dining room. Currently, I have two room mates… Justine, another WorldTeach volunteer, who will be returning home at the end of the month (very, very sad about this!) and Bev, a VSO volunteer from England who just arrived. Once Justine leaves, I will move into her room but in the meantime my stuff is everywhere.
While the 8km of walking a day will kill me, I can’t tell you how nice it is to live bug free. I will post photos soon, I promise!
