About the SeminarAna Mae Barbosa Report
This was a tremendous experience I will carry with me along life's journey. I want to thank all of you who made this memory possible. I arrived safely with Namibia on my mind. All the best dear friends until we see again.
Those days will remain in our memories: observing the animals, feeling the infinite sky, eating together, travelling together with our differences, with our peculiar ways of understanding life. I learned so many things about time, about the land about the people. Like in the silk road, traveling together as a caravan, letting it flow as a river, taking attention to the details, the little things which make us diamonds in the land of the brave. Thank you Dr. Christiana Afrikaner; Karinna; Gretta; Magda; Malachias; Tallita; Mama Rastafari; Papa; Joanna; Mr A Haodom; Mr J Marthin; Mr I Knittle; Mr J Sakarias; Mr M Uirab; Ms J Kalondo; Ms A Shipiki; Ms H Asino; Ms S Louw; Ms E Thudinyane; J Iilonga, Ms A Kaoses; Ms J Rukamba; Ms N Emvula and all the Namibian organizers and participants of the seminar for your generosity anfd for being part of my life.
