Journal Entry:
Up pretty early to move car. Rachel called (Turkey / Syria March '98) and we arranged to meet. I spent the morning sorting gear - what to leave in the car, what to store elsewhere, and what to take to new Zealand. Followed Rachel to her house and left some stuff for safe keeping, then followed her to her parents and left my car (they've let me park it there for the next month and a half).

Had lunch at a nearby shopping center and while Rachel dealt with some business I got a couple rolls of film developed (all from Tasmania), went to the post office (I'd forgotten to pay the parking ticket I got in Hobart), and went to the book store (now that I've read the last book in the Lord of the Rings series I'm going to read the first three so I bought the Hobbit).

The weather has gone south - still hot, but drizzling and gray. So when Rachel dropped me off at the hostel I just spent the rest of the night goofing off - read, ate diner, and watched the movie 12 Monkeys (as twisted as I remembered it).
