Close second - unlimited, free internet. Yeah, it still cuts out every now and then, but I can get online and check my email for free at ANY TIME. And it's fast enough to upload pictures!
Other things to enjoy - delicious food, especially PIZZA; not one, but two malls; hot water coming out of the kitchen taps; hanging out with other PCVs; not waking up at 5:45am!!
The downside - Windhoek is living up to it's name, "windy corner." I've never been here during winter before, but now I know it is so much colder than Tsumeb! I definitely did not bring enough warm clothes, and have pretty much been cold anytime I'm not snuggling under covers in my bed. Some of you all suffering from midwest heat waves might appreciate the weather here!
For the next week, I'll be helping plan the training for Group 36, who will arrive on July 25th (incidentally also our third wedding anniversary). If you remember, we were group 34. Group 35 came in March, but they were all health volunteers; now we're expecting the next group of education volunteers! About 8 PCVs from our group will be serving as resource volunteers during group 36's PST, so for the next week we are all meeting together with the trainers to make sure everything is ready.
It's weird to now be the experts instead of the newbies. Group 32 are technically the veterans at this point, but they will be leaving in just a couple of months. That means we (the 34s) are the ones who will be going to training and giving sessions and advice to the new group. True, we'll only have 2 terms under our belts, but I remember thinking the 32s were experts at our training, and they had only completed 2 terms too!
I'm hoping it will be a good, fast week, and then I can get back to Tsumeb and Dylan. =) Home sweet home!
