Saw Claudia and some of the others from the hostel off - contrary to popular belief it is possible to leave Zimbabwe. I took a taxi to a crafts market just outside the city center on Enterprise Road. It was a bit of a disappointment, but that didn't stop me from doing my duty to the local economy. I ended up buying eight small stone hippos, three stone elephants, 3 Nyaminyami pendants (one stone, two horn), and a wooden bowl.
Walked the three kilometers back to the city center. Today is a public holiday, Africa Day and it's amazing how quiet town is - even quieter than Sundays. Not much to do so I got some food (Pizza Inn - yum). I was the only person still in town so had the shuttle back to the lodge to myself - much different from the thirteen people in the back of the truck last week.
Back at the lodge made some phone calls, worked on my journal, hung out, watched a documentary on Etosha, read, and basically avoided packing.
