Journal Entry:
Spent the morning walking around St. George's mall and exploring the many small shops and booths - didn't buy anything though. Met the others at the Victoria & Albert Waterfront mall. We went and caught another movie (my seventh since arriving in South Africa). We saw Ronin, which was quite good.

I dragged the others to the pizza restaurant that Marius and Linda had taken me to. No surprise to me, but the others were impressed and we had another excellent meal.

Had a beer and a bottle of wine with diner then more beers back at the hostel. Basically the start of what evolved into a very full on night out (Long Street Bar, The Lounge, two others?). The second place we went to was a club called The Lounge from there I decided to leave the others and head home to bed, but somehow on the way home I ended up in another bar and then another one after that. Finally got back to the hostel at around four.
