Journal Entry:
Woke up feeling pretty much normal but decided to take it easy just the same. Spent the morning / early afternoon lounging and writing email on my H/PC. In the afternoon I went into town and had a huge lunch despite not being all that hungry. The rest of the afternoon was spent in the internet cafe sending email and adding an itinerary function to my journal manager so if I go incommunicado again people will have an idea where I thought I was going to be. I spent the evening working with the travel books trying to decide what I want to see in Ghana and had another huge meal (which I couldn't finish). My Saturday night was spent doing a thorough washing (almost three hours worth!) One advantage to hand washing in your hotel room is that you can get everything clean, you can't really sit in a laundry mat naked. Was up late figuring out my most likely itinerary.
