  1. Hi Janie! What an awesome pic of you. Didn’t realize that you spoke Tshivenda, but then again, I should have remembered because you were in Zambia or was it Malawi…anyway, our part of the world – Southern Africa. I speak a little Nama/Damara, Otjiherero, Oshindonga/Oshikwanyama and picked up Afrikaans (though I tried to avoid it). Great being in classes with you this Spring and let’s keep in touch, my sister!
