Zambia - Angie's Peace Corps (Namibia) Adventure

05:15 pm - Zambia
So while I was talking to Dani last night I mentioned all the places I want to go to while I’m here in Africa (which is pretty much everywhere on the continent), but I specifically mentioned Zambia, Botswana, Kenya, & Tanzania as my tops. And Dani was like “Well, I’m going to Zambia in December…wanna come?!”. Ummm let me think for a sec. YES. Yes yes yes yes yes!!!! I was so excited! I’ve got all these dreams of places I want to go to yet I haven’t started to make any plans about making them a reality- partly because I haven’t identified anyone who would be willing to make any of these trips w me just yet, and I certainly don’t wanna do it alone. I said I’d thought about doing it & I asked her if hitching it would be possible and she said totally. Dani hitches EVERYWHERE. I mean EVERYWHERE. If anyone knows, it’s her. I was a bit hesitant though so I asked if she’s hitched to outside of Nam before. She has. I told her like 5 times, Dani I’m serious about this- don’t you mess w my feelings! LOL. December is a long way off, but she’s dead serious, as am I. So it looks like we might be making our way to Zambia! I’m just really happy to have found someone who is willing to do it w/ me. She’s all about hitching around, as am I. I would probably have done it with Rute, but Rute is not so much into the hiking around. She’d want to take a combi everywhere, whereas I think it’s more fun the other way. I just rather get the full experience & that’s definitely the way to do it! Aside from traveling with PCVs the only way I’d head out of Namibia would be to travel with someone who came to visit me from home, but that would defeat the purpose, I think. If anyone comes to visit me from home I want to show you Namibia, so you can see what my life is like here, what I do, etc etc. There is soo much to see just in Namibia. I am actually anxious to get out and explore here. There is tons I’ve yet to see. Namibia really has a lot to see. Heck honestly, I’ll go anywhere in Africa. If you want to go with me, please let me know. I’m all about it. Just plan it out w me ahead of time. I only have so many vacation days & I’m planning to make the most of my time in Africa, so I do plan on exploring as much as I possibly can. I fucking love this continent. Sorry about the cussing…but I just love it that much. I’m just emphasizing just how much I love Africa.
