Certainly not those of us - even reasonable well-compensated Program Directors - who work for conservation non-profits. But having managed nearly four years in Namibia earlier in life, I have experienced more of that extraordinary land and its people than those who can afford a luxery safari every year.


This is my first 3-day stretch "off" since Feb.10th--and it's nice to catch up with old friends. I'll be gone again this week, but I'm hoping to have some hospice support soon. Thank you, again, for your warm wishes. They really cheered me up the other day.

Wish you all could go to the anniversary celebration too. There's nothing like being in person, but WOW, how many people have a vacation budget the size of a new car? :)

Take care.


Thanks, Lene! Great to hear from you. I wasn't sure if you were able to resume blogging with all that has been going on and hope you and those you love are well.

Burton is no longer staying with us but is still at Simon's Rock College in Great Barrington, finishing up his sophmore year. He is planning a return visit to Namibia as the guide for a school trip in the coming year.

I miss Namibia and wish we had the resources to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Conservancy we helped establish back in 1997-98. They have gone from strength to strength and we still correspond. Don't have the $15,000-$20,000 or so AND the vacation time for 4 of us to visit, rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle and stay for three weeks. Ah well, we can still cheer them on from here!


Hey Tim,
I had a great time reading this post and the previous one you linked to. What a privelege and pleasure to be involved in such a successful conservation project! Are you still hosting the Namibian college student?
