Wildlife at Chudob - a waterhole - in Etosha
A picnic lunch in Etosha
The Emergency Room entrance of the Evangelical Medical Center of Lubango. In Portuguese it is the Centro Evangelica de Medicina de Lubango or CEML. We arrived back from Namibia with our renewed visas two weeks before CEML was to open and spent those two weeks cleaning, sorting and arranging items in preparation for opening. We would never really have been ready so eventually THE day - October 16th, 2006 - arrived and we are still trying to catch up and be ready!
The Operating Room block. The delivery room entrance is the last door on the left.
CEML's first patient!
The crowd on opening day!
Adolfo, the main lab technician
Dr Steve Foster - the medical director of CEML
The next big event after the opening of the CEML was the arrival of our container of all our "worldly" possessions including our vehicle. Unfortunately, I didn't get a photo of our vehicle in the container, but all the rest of the stuff was packed behind this "wall"
We did not get stuck!
stunning views where the central plateau drops 5000 feet to the coastal plain....
any rock climbers or hang gliders out there?!
Then there is the deserted beach and literally you are in a desert!
but the fish don't know that!
Peter is still the reigning pancake king - even at the beach!
And the sunsets never fail to disappoint if you prefer the quieter form of relaxation!
Thanksgiving Dinner! We even had turkey and pumpkin pie!
December found us heading to Namibia to renew our visas again as the three months had expired. It was also the highlight of the year to have our daughter, Jasper, come to visit! We went quad biking in the dunes on the Namib Desert in Namibia while we waited for our visas to come through.
