i don't know how to smalltalk plus i have no sense of humour, so i'm afraid that after we'd br done talking about family, news and general life here and there i'd snap back into my usual mode of talking very little and being a boring, middle-aged single uncle from germany. >>14611
i'm no expert as i never have been there, but i'd say compared with standards in germany german namibians lead generally a decent "middle class" or upper middle class life in terms of personal wealth, or they are wealthy business people. many black namibians belong to the middle class as well, but they also tend to struggle more often financially i.e. are poor.
>Why they not go back to germany for better life quality?
young namibians may come here to study. after they've graduated they may decide to not go back to namibia, because there are more and different career opportunities on offer here for them. for older südwesters it wouldn't make sense to leave, because they would have to sell their farms, close their business or quit their job. also they live there since many generations and feel themselves both as namibians and germans.
