Today I sit at Windhoek airport waiting for the start of the long flight home. So much has happened, and I think it will take a while to absorb. Memories of places and people, smells and sounds…

The border crossing was easy, save a long wait. I immediately noticed something different in Zimbabwe: [...]

The drive was a recollection of driving along roads and through towns sitting in the back seat of our Volkswagon beetle with the dog [...]
