Journal Entry:
Tried to sleep in, but the others were way to loud so around ten I gave up and got out of bed (only 13 hours of sleep). I'm definitely coming down with a cold but for the most part I feel much better than I did last night. Spent the morning answering email, then headed down to the internet cafe to send it.

Walked over to the Waterfront and dropped the film from yesterday off to be developed. Spent a couple hours wandering through the mall. Mostly browsing the various African curio shops trying to guess where everything was from (lots of stuff from West Africa). Still not feeling so hot, so was feeling pretty self indulgent and had diner at the Hard Rock Cafe (so-so) before picking up the film (lots of penguins).

Despite not feeling that great decided to head with the others to Fat Boys (Wednesday - all you can drink). There ended up being thirteen of us from the hostel and it was a blast.
