The plan for today was to pick up the package my parents had sent me from FedEx. Unfortunately their office is out by the airport so I spent the morning and early afternoon hanging out in the hostel waiting for a ride. Early afternoon I gave up and hired a taxi. I negotiated a price of about half what I'd been told it would cost - the driver turned off the meter and added some fuel - I'm sure the fare went straight in his pocket. At FedEx I had them change the tax receipt to my name (instead of the name of my friend that I had my parents ship to). That way I should at least be able to get the VAT part of the duty I paid back.
Spent the evening playing with the new toys! Got a new H/PC (an HP 660LX - color!), a new camera (a Cannon SLR), and my parents gave me a 75 - 300 zoom lens - so lots to play with. Stu, Joy, and I went to visit Dean again. He looks a little better. Went to the pizza place near the hostel for diner, and played with my toys some more. Went to see the late showing of Antz (half price) - found the animation a little disappointing.
