Journal Entry:
Walked down the Todd mall. Grabbed a bite to eat, and put in a roll of film. Dropped Susie off at the airport, and started looking for more modest accomodation. Checked into a backpackers close to the center of town. Spent some time at the internet cafe trying to get caught up on the flood of email (nearly 60 messages).

Tried exploring the city, but it's Sunday afternoon and almost everything is closed. Had fastfood, went back to the internet and worked some more on email and on my mom's site (my birthday gift to her) www.JulitaJones.com. Back at the hostel I watched a video ("Pleasantville") in the lounge. Spent some time on my own working on my journal, and then some more time in the lounge reading. Finished off the night at the hostel's bar - not much for style, but the music was good, and the beer cheap!
