Following my life and work at the Cheetah Conservation Fund

Christmas in Africa

Even though we are out in the middle of no where, 40 minutes from the closest town, Christmas is something to be celebrated, and here at CCF we did just that. On Christmas Eve, we went out to the big field and had dinner which was a lot of fun. We enjoyed everyone’s company, great food, and watched the sun go down. The sky in Namibia during the summer is incredible and I’ve never seen it like it is here before. On Christmas Day everyone relaxed, though some of the cheetahs still had to be fed. We had a Christmas brunch and once the few jobs for that day had been completed, we all went to Laurie’s house to watch the movie Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. That evening we had hamburgers cooked by Bruce, which were wonderful. Although it was very different than Christmas at home, it was still a very enjoyable experience and I think everyone here at CCF had a wonderful Christmas. From CCF, hope everyone had a great Christmas and has a wonderful New Year!!!
