July 21: My office (!)
The last 48 hours or so have been filled with non-stop activity and learning. Exhilarated, overwhelmed, and exhausted seem like appropriate adjectives for now.
Over the next ten days I will take over the duties of the previous training person here at Gobabeb, so I have a lot to learn in a short amount of time. From the sound of things, most of my skill-set will have to be acquired on the job, but I am excited to learn and contribute as much as I can to what I am quickly realizing is one of the most amazing places I’ve ever been able to experience.
In a couple of days I will embark on a 4 day expedition to different schools in the region doing environmental education and outreach. I am really excited to get a better sense of what it’s like for Namibians to live here as well as explore the environmental challenges that everyone here must face. Also, I may or may not be slaughtering a goat in the next few hours.
Over the next 12 months I hope to share little tidbits of my life here, but for now, enjoy a few of the photos I have taken!
