Journal Entry:
Dean got out today so we had a nice lunch to celebrate. After lunch I headed back to Sandton City Mall to get some more film developed (the test roll from my new camera, the test roll from my old camera, and another old roll). Hopefully I'll be able to determine if all my film is trashed. While I was there I found another one hour lab and decided to have a few more rolls developed as a control against the first lab (in case it was the lab that ruined my film). All eight rolls came back - no problem. So either the first roll was bad to start with or the lab screwed it up. Either way a huge relief.

Back at the hostel met up with about a dozen others and we went to the pub for diner, beers, and pool.
