Journal Entry:
Not surprisingly wasn't feeling to hot this morning. Dean got up at ten to go pick up Angie and Kim in Walvis Bay (two girls from the hostel that Dean had promised a ride to). I decided to get up and have a look around, but then realized that Dean had taken the keys so I couldn't lock up the room. Hung out until Dean got back with the girls, then headed out to look around town. Ended up finding an internet cafe and spent three hours getting my journal up to date (I was more that a month behind). Back at the hostel we had a great diner (the four of us, plus Angie and Kim, plus Roisin - an overlander that we'd hung out with). After diner we felt so good that we decided to go out for a drink or two - which once again evolved into a major night - didn't come home until the nightclubs closed...
