Journal Entry:
Had a leisurely late breakfast (definitely feeling last night - that's two hangovers for South Africa already). Joy and I set out to walk to an internet cafe we had a flyer for. It was quite a bit further than we thought and took us over an hour and a half to get there. A little over an hour there and we caught a black taxi (SA's answer to the shared taxi) back into downtown - cutting an hour off the walk home.

There was a free Brai (South African for BBQ) at the hostel - it was actually quite good. Spent the night reading and writing.
