Journal Entry:
Walked with Dean, Joy, and Craig to the Sunday market at Green Point - a beautiful sunny day for the hour long walk. The market was a bit disappointing - not that much different from a swap-meet back in the US. I did buy several used books and some hair clippers - and managed to get quite sunburned.

The others headed back to the waterfront mall, so I walked back to the hostel alone. Marius picked me up and took me to his house for another braai - once again delicious. Met a lot more people - friends of Marius and Linda and basically had a great time.

Had a mellow time back at the hostel - the highlight was the movie Being There on the television.
