Journal Entry:
Went in to the city center at eleven. Spent most of the hour until the twelve thirty pickup trying to find food. Finally found a couple super markets, and a Chinese take away - mediocre spring rolls for lunch.

Last Sunday I went to the National Museum and saw a painting in the museum shop that I fell in love with. I went back to the museum today to buy the painting. Predictable it had already been sold.

Back at the hostel spent the rest of the day reading and working on my journal. I also tried to organize my stuff so that I could ship it tomorrow - an apparently impossible job. There's no chance of getting the packages out tomorrow, and since it's a public holiday Tuesday (Africa Day) it looks like I'll be here until at least Wednesday and most likely Thursday.
