Journal Entry:
Got woken up a phone call at at the ungodly hour of nine. The phone's battery died after I was asked if I'd been sleeping. Since I'd managed to say "yes" before being cut off I had to get up and go down to the payphone or risk coming off as very rude. Just as well, it got all of us going fairly early.

The morning was spent running errands that needed to be done. None of us was feeling too hot so the first stop was McDonalds - excellent. Then we dropped off some stuff at a friend of Craig's so that he can pick it up when comes back through Cape Town. Craig also needed a couple more shots so we took him by a clinic. Then we did some shopping (bought a grill, some fishing gear, and looked at a very poor selection of tents).

Spent a long afternoon trying to pack. It's amazing how much crap I have, and how distributed all over the room it has gotten in the month we've been in Cape Town. Met up with Robbie and Margaret at the Purple Turtle for a beer, then continued out to pizza.
