Journal Entry:
Woke up to pouring rain. Had breakfast, but alas today it was still raining. Braved the rain to the internet cafe and spent an hour. Walked outside the internet cafe and turned right around it was absolutely pouring, so I spent another hour and a half with email.

In the afternoon went to pick up my tickets. Should be quick, right? Nope. Spent an hour and a half while they wrote out the tickets and figured out what my visa situation is - again. Finally leave with my tickets and head back to the Africa House for sundowner again.

Made arangements to do a couple dives tomorrow (the dive club is under the Africa House), then wandered up for a beer. While sitting on the deck (under the roof) at Africa House it poured rain - so no sunset, but the quantity of rain was impressive. Met Aretha and Hanna (was in the tent next to mine on the Ngorogor Crater Rim) and around Sunset the rain stopped and we headed back t0o the park for diner. Another excellent (and cheap) diner of street food (already looking forward to tomorrow night!)
