Good news! My flat is finished, and I have now *officialy* moved into my home for the next 19 months. And what great timing, as I had 7 people come into town for the holiday weekend. It's been a lot of fun catching up with my friends I haven't seen since swearing in back in January. Last night we saw the worst movie ever, The New World. What a waste! We were so excited to go to a movie, but it was crap! Colin Ferrall, I want my N$30 back!!! However, today we will make up for it, as we are going to cook a delightful meal tonight and hang out at my new place. I'm excited to break in my new flat (figuratively speaking) :)
We watched the movie Beyond Borders the other night with Angelina Jolie. I recommend this movie, because it was filmed in Namibia, just outside of Swakopmund! They even have a section at the end of the dvd that shows them filming the movie here. You'll get a glimpse of the desert and the mist here in Swakopmund!
Independence day was pretty relaxing. 2 of my friends were here until this morning, so we went to breakfast at Out of Africa, a nice little outdoor cafe. After they left, I cleaned up the flat and took a nap. I am definitely coming down with something, maybe just a cold, because I slept most of the day. In the afternoon, I went with my friends down to Walvis Bay for Independence day festivities, but nothing was really going on, just a soccer match. I heard there was a big celebration in Windhoek, but also heard rumors it was pouring down rain and there were really long lines for everything. Glad my day was more low key!
