Free Time, CGE Reflection, Sky Bar and Fusion
06.08.2011 - 06.08.2011
Early in the morning, a few members of our group traveled to downtown Windhoek to visit the Craft Market. The Craft Market had a variety of materials, which included maps, paintings, photo books of Animals in Etosha, earrings, bracelets and necklaces made of materials by Namibians. Some in our group purchased wooden utensils such as spoons and forks and some purchase craftwork of animals such as the elephant and the giraffe. The only item that I purchased at the place was a walking stick. Some people in our group drank and eat at the coffee shop there. I left earlier while others continued shopping some more.
In the afternoon Romanus moderated a session on our reflection of our entire experience in Namibia. Each of us wrote on the bulletin board describing one word about the country, the education system, the teachers and the students. Some wrote disciplined, patriotic, multilingual, commitment to community and generous. Then we all took turns explaining why we wrote some of the words on the bulletin board. Afterwards we each talked about what we took out of our experience in Namibia.
Since the Young Achievers was canceled we had free time to do whatever we wanted. At some point in the late afternoon, the entire group went to the Skybar to watch the sunset. We only spent almost a couple of hours at the skybar before we realized that it was too cold and then we went back to the CGE house to go to the Fusion.
The Fusion is one of a few successful restaurants that is own by a Namibian woman. It is located several blocks away from the CGE House. They served a variety of meals such as the kingclip, chicken, steak and others. After eating there we all went back to the CGE house and some called it a day.
