What inspires me in Namibia

What inspires me in Namibia

Apart from being a beautiful country surrounded by dunes and an ocean, the diversity of
different cultures, Namibia is situated south west of Africa, approximately 825,615km2 with
a small population with different backgrounds building the stability, peace and tranquillity of
the country. Namibia is one of the developing countries, with freedom of speech and very
friendly people.
What inspires me most of our country is the phrase “the survival of the fittest” is evident.
Single mothers, low income families and underprivileged persons not being held back to
survive. Looking at the street vendors, be it recharge vouchers or newspaper sellers, they all
have something in common, committed to put bread on their tables, waking up early hours of
the morning to face the fast streets of Windhoek, kapana stalls which has recently became a
tourist attraction as a large number of people now travel from different places to visit kapana
stalls either at Single quarters or Okuryangava Stop and Shop and this include also foreigners
who would want to have the experience of that small piece of barbeque. The early birds bus
stop to get to work on time or those who walk long distances to arrive at work this is what
inspires me. The urge to not give up regardless of circumstances and background, this is so
inspiring. We have the subsistence farming in the northern part of Namibia, who mainly farm
cattle and goats with slight number of pig’s livestock and eat from their own produce mostly
mahangu and indigenous vegetables.
Many are those days when you do not want to leave your house for work or just physically
tired and do not want to do anything at all, looking at how these people are committed to
what they do is amazing and this alone is a pushing factor that you can do much greater
things with the condition and being privileged.
