While conducting the Haingura Abercross business training, I stayed in my counterpart’s homestead which was near to the training site. Here are some photos of my experiences in the village.
I love the big trees in the middle of the homestead providing shade and sometimes food, depending on the type.
My tasty dinner of river fish and mahangu pap (Millet porridge).
My colleague’s family owns and operates this shebeen next to their homestead.
Great smiles from the kids at the homestead housing the Haingura Abercross project.
Amazing village sunset taken with my phone.
The same night’s sunset but this was taken with my Canon SLR.

Typical village landscape with goats.
This hippo was in the Kavango River near the old mission in Rupara. On a separate night, I accidentally took a quick bath in the river with a hippo floating on the other side. I didn’t realize it was there until I was already out drying off and it started grunting.
