Journal Entry:
Got up early to catch the eight o'clock shuttle in to town. Spent a little more time at an internet cafe. Had luch (pizza!) with Claudia then went on a quest for a Lonely Planet East Africa - no luck. Caught the 12:30 shuttle back to the hostel and spent the rest of the afternoon hanging out in the sun reading. Took a late afternoon nap then went out to join everyone for the braii - a whole lamb. Unfortunately the lamb was very fatty and unevenly cooked - most of it was unedible. A huge disappointment since it had looked and smelled so good all afternoon.
