Journal Entry:
Easter - in Sun City. I kind of liked the idea of the contrast between last year (Jerusalem). However I didn't remember until we were stuck in traffic outside the entry gate that I didn't really think much of Sun City the first time I went. And last time the place was pretty much deserted, this time it was packed. I just hung out in a coffee shop for the three hours we were there, nice enough but would have been nicer back at the hostel. Didn't even gamble at all.

Back at the hostel watched a couple videos and headed for bed.
