We spent the first half of our day in Windhoek, solidifying plans for our trip to the north and interviewing contact Forrest Branch. It's hard to believe that this is already our third day here and our last morning in Windhoek until we return from the north next Tuesday.
After a quick ride to the domestic airport, we boarded our flight bound for Ondangwa! The short 45-minute flight was much easier than our original plan to make the 8-hour trip by car, and we got to see Namibia from high in the sky. Upon arrival in Ondangwa, we were met by our contact Dr. Itanna, a professor at the University of Namibia in Ogongo. We were so excited to finally meet face to face after having been in contact for so many months. Tomorrow we all depart for Rundu, where we will stop for an overnight before heading to Bwabwata National Park the following day.
