Journal Entry:
Walked the ten kilometers (!) into town. After the rather long walk we died in a cafe for an hour before going different directions. Claudia and I ventured down to the port. There must be twenty or thirty ship wrecks littering the sands around the port - amazing. Unfortunately some of the ambiance is lost as the beach is used as a toilet. Wandered around the nearby market (bought some fruit and string) then hit an internet cafe to quickly check email.

There's only an hour of day light left and it's a long walk back - especially since Claudia's foot is injured and she can't walk very quickly. Somewhat less than half way there we manage to figure out how to catch one of the local shared taxis and get a ride back to camp (well worth the fifteen cents).

Back at camp found out that Richard was able to find another spare tire so he'll be back on the road tomorrow. Another beautiful hot shower and another excessive diner and it's bed time. Getting up very early tomorrow.
