Journal Entry:
Went in to Perth with Kate and Susie. On the way in I got a call from the FedEx people - my new camera and lens have arrived! Unfortunately in order to avoid $300 in customs I have to fax them a copy of my passport and a ticket out of the country - the later of which I don't have yet, so I can't get my camera until I get my New Zealand tickets worked out. In town, the girls went shopping, while I went to the internet cafe and found some replacement sunglasses on the net. Also got the last ten days of journal entries uploaded.

Met up with Kate and Susie and we had lunch at a great place (great food, really pretentious 80's decor) on the Swan river. After lunch I went to a travel agent and started working on the specifics of my trip to New Zealand. Also started looking into my flight to Africa late next June, plus just to really challenge the guy I checked up on Antarctica trips (unfortunately they leave from Argentina, not New Zealand). After I finished torturing the travel agent I met up with Kate, Stew, and Stew and a pub. After many beers we picked up a bottle of wine and a six pack of beer and headed home for a great T-bone diner.
