Journal Entry:
Slept in, worked on email. Went into town on the later shuttle. While at the internet cafe ran into Dean, Darrelle, and Brett! and even more amazing Seth!! the guy who introduced me to Dean, Joy, and Stu - last saw him in Ghana. Aranged to meet Dean and company later at the Eastgate Center.

Finally decided against going to Madagascar, or rather decided to put it off untl I have the time to do it properly. Went by the travel agent to book a canoe trip for tomorrow only to find I'd been given the wrong info and it doesn't run until Saturday. Since I don't have the time to waste in Harare I'm not sure what I'm going to do now.

Had lunch with Claudia at Mateos (same place I had lunch on Sunday). Met up with Dean to collect the rest of my gear from the car only to find out they'd taken a taxi to town - so I'll have to get it tomorrow at their campsite.
