Journal Entry:
Spent the morning getting caught up with my journal and reading. Got on the internet and spent three hours writing code to collect and display information on countries from my journal. Made reservations to fly to Cape Town tomorrow. Went for a nice afternoon walk to McDonald's (only my second time in the week I've been here!)

Very mellow evening reading and talking with other travelers. Late night got the munchies and ordered a pizza delivered - civilization definitely has its advantages...
