Journal Entry:
Started of the day doing laundry - due to the Saturday morning laundry rush this took a lot longer than necessary. Sent some email, then ventured outside.

A perfect day weather wise - blue skies a gentle breeze, and not to hot! I wandered around the city center of Adelaide. Not really sure what I think of the city. Definitely nothing to exciting, but it's pleasant and kind of sombre - a good city to walk and think in. Phoned home - nice to talk to people there, though I had some major phone trouble that shortened the conversations. Went and saw the movie "Man on the Moon" - which I liked. Then went wandering around the streets again.

By this time the streets were pretty much deserted though it's still bright and sunny out. Wandered around thinking (about travel, life, war, peace, love and gravity - everything and nothing) and by the time I got back to the hostel I'm in a very weird mood. I feel like I'm 18 and indestructable, but at the same time philosphical and pensive. I don't know whether to go get drunk or sit down and meditate. It's a good mood, but strange.

Spent most of the evening packing - I hate packing! Luckily I don't seem to have forgotten anything, and everything seems to fit in my pack - two worries put to rest.
