Journal Entry:
Had an unexciting drive to Bulawayo. Bulawayo looks like a nice enough town, but not to exciting. Find a nice hostel a ways out of town and check in. Joy and I hang out while the others go in for groceries. Since it's Sunday almost everything is closed and they have a lot of trouble tracking down food. Have a nice diner and try to watch a move, but the VCR can't handle the tracking.
