A delicacy by any other name


During training we all came together; volunteers, trainers, and host families to participate in a cultural day.  This day allowed the Namibians to show the newly arrived Americans many aspects of their diverse culture, namely food.  While many volunteers had partaken in these delicacies with their host families they had not helped in the preparation.  As many can tell you, eating a goat and slaughtering a goat are two very different things.  Unfortunately this goat and I had bonded in the combi that had driven it to its demise.
