Abi Dvorak '10: Images from Namibia and South Africa

Abi Dvorak '10 sends along some pictures from Namibia where she is on study abroad:

The first photo is of our group climbing Dune 7 in Swakopmund, Namibia. The second is of the main method of transportation in the rural areas of Namibia- donkey cart. We had the pleasure of riding them during the rural homestay when we stayed on Damara farms outside of Khorixas. The third is part of the informal settlements of Windhoek. The population in the informal settlements is incredibly high and most cannot afford enough water, food, or school fees for their children. The fourth is of the Voortrekker Monument in Pretoria, South Africa. This monument is a source of pride for Afrikaner history- it commemorates when the Dutch traveled from Cape Town to Pretoria and conquered the Zulu people.

Hope you enjoy!
