Journal Entry:
Nice lazy day. Got to sleep in until nearly ten. Spent the morning reading my travel book. Between my ears (which are bugging me) and reading the travel guide I've decided not to go back to Tutukaka for more diving. I'm going to try to catch the train tomorrow morning - an unfortunately early morning train.

Got on the internet and got caught up on email, banking, and the news. Wandered around Mt Eden's eccentric shops and had a late brunch and coffee. Everything seems to be pretty sleepy on a Sunday afternoon. Spent the rest of the afternoon reading and getting caught up on my journal. Got on the internet again to quickly update my journal and finished the night off with kababs for diner and a bad television movie.
