We have safely arrived in Namibia after a long travel day and are thrilled to be here. We checked into our hostel, the Cardboard Box, (where the Class of 2006 stayed when they came to Namibia!) and then spent the afternoon getting our bearings in the city with the help of our incredible contact, Katherine Carter. Katherine works at the Polytechnic Institute and helped to make this trip happen, so we were so excited to finally meet her and express our thanks. And she's an Elon graduate too! We plan to spend the rest of our day getting in touch with our contacts to set up official meetings to start getting interviews. We are still all in shock that we are here, probably due in part to being fuzzy brained from the jet lag, but can't wait to see how the rest of our time here unfolds.
