Journal Entry:
Called the tour operator - plane is not fixed. Try to decide what to do instead -none of the other tours are time / financially viable. Try to talk some of the other hostel people in to going to Chinhoyi Cave National Park, but no one can be bothered. Finally Claudia agrees to go, but by the time we get in to town we decided against it. Head to Westgate Center - adventure to work out the shared taxi (Omini-bus) system. The center is just a nice shopping mall could be anyplace in SA or America. Boring - but do buy some Amarula. An English girl staying here has her bagged stolen from the pick up spot - a drunk guy stumbled into her and while she was distracted another guy stole it. Back at hostel make plans to go to the cave tomorrow relatively early. Amarula and bed.
