Journal Entry:
Today was the Australia - England Rugby match. The plan was to go in to a sports bar in town watch the game, have a few beers and maybe lunch or diner. We got to the bar around 2pm to find that the game didn't start until 5:30 although there was a Ireland - South Africa game at 3:30. Between our car, the overland truck company and random people the bar was pretty crowded. It was a totally typical American type sports bar (even toilet paper!) The food was excellent and by the time we left round midnight we'd drank who knows how much beer, lots of tequila and had a fantastic lunch and diner - not to mention seen South Africa dominate Ireland, and Australia barely beat England.

Joy wasn't doing so well so we all caught a cab back to the camp. Dean and I decided to go back into town to meet some of the overlanders at a bar (just what we needed). After the bar dancing sounded like a good idea and we ended up at nightclub. The club was so packed with prostitutes that it was kind of uncomfortable - but that didn't prevent me from staying on until well after four (Dean had vanished some hours earlier). I watched the sun start to rise and realized that tomorrow was going to be really uncomfortable.
