Journal Entry:
Into town early. Browsed through some galleries and upmarket curio shops. Went to an internet cafe to check email and have a cup of coffee. Stoped by a travel agent to look into a canoe trip on the lower Zambezi in case Madagascar falls through (it's starting to look unlikely since visas seem to be unavailable). Wandered through one of the outside crafts markets again, then hit another internet cafe and spent an hour trying to fix my journal (nothing after May 10 is working?!?!). Picked up the three rolls of film I dropped off on Friday - no really exciting photos.

Back at the hostel I helped Julio (than manager / owner?) get his computer working on the internet, had diner, and read.
