About Benjamin...

Since February 2010 I am living in northern Namibia (aka Ovamboland!) in a town called Outapi which is close to the Angolan border and the capital of the Omusati region. Embedded with the Ministry of Education I am working there as an ICT advisor for a Swiss development NGO/NPO.

The postal system here is different to the one I've been used to in Europe: you won't see a mailman or a letter box in the whole region. You have to collect you mail at the post office. Thanks to that the checking of my P.O Box during lunch time has become a daily ritual - and it's always like Xmas when I find something in there. Although I have just opened up my postcrossing account I think that every postcard (well, almost...) received will brighten my day.

I am very interested in whatever message you might write. Tell me a little about you and the world you're living in, because the one I am living in now is quite small and people go (too) early to bed.

p.s.: how reliable is the postal service in Namibia? None of the parcels or magazines shipped from Europe disappeared so far. But due to African time it takes sometimes quite a while.
