Journal Entry:
Once again got up early to move the car, but this time went back to bed. Tried to get my car serviced. Drove around to several garages, but the best I could do was to get an appointment for Thursday afternoon - looks like I'll be in Alice until Friday...

Picked up the roll of film I'd turned in on Sunday - nothing too exciting, though there were pictures going back to when I was in Western Australia four months ago. Spent an hour and half at an Internet cafe - mostly writing lost journal entries. Some from as far back as last June in Tanzania. Had a huge dinner which also happened to be my first meal of the day. Back at the hostel I read and watched a video (The Bone Collector).
