So today I woke up late because of yesterday’s proceeding. We were at Adolf the taylor finishing up some suits for the NAMAs. I should really add Stylist and junior designer to my resume. I had fun learning how to make buttons being taught by Bhenge (the 12 year old) and Adolf.
Its a hot day today and we are busy preparing to drive to Swakopmund for the NAMAs. We have decided to leave a day earlier because we want to go the desert and do some swimming at the beach ( I cannot swim by the way). However, we can not let such a minor issue stop us from having fun. I really love my brothers that I have found here.
Well we did not leave early as planned however Lukas took me out and showed me around he was actually surprised that I love to walk, and my response was “How are you supposed to explore while you are in a car” . We went to the market and looked through some vintage clothes and of course got some food.
I found out something significant, at the end of the month people braai or cook meat and sell to make some money. This was music to my ears as we stopped everywhere to buy meat. I had fish, chicken, tripe and beef. ?Something to be noted is that pap is not so much of a necessity. People here eat meat without pap, thus I found myself lacking in that department as I love my meat with pap.
The fish that I ate
Walking with Lukas was absolute fun as he like me likes to eat, to cool off we went to buy some ice cream and the people at the shop were very impressed with my style. One guy went as far as comparing me to his mother when his father proposed to her. “she was beautiful”he says. This memory is sparked by my vintage clothing.
We eventually left for Swakopmund at 19:30 and the road trip was so much fun. It involved great music, great company and great food at the stops. We finally arrived at midnight full of energy thanks to the Plays that we drank en route our destination.
