Journal Entry:
Once again the others head off on a dive and I'm stuck on shore with a cold. Woke up feeling even worse than yesterday. Maybe tomorrow.

Had breakfast with the others when they got back. Went in to Inhambane with Dean, Brett, and Darrelle to do some shopping and run some errands (post office, change money, etc.).

Spent the afternoon hanging out on the veranda, or down at the beach bar (not drinking - I'm still hoping to get healthy so I can dive). We were planning on making a prawn curry stir-fry for dinner. A local fisherman had agreed to bring three kilograms of prawns to the lodge, but he never showed up. so went and had another Ok, but expensive diner at the lodge restaurant. Even with cold medicine I'm feeling worse, so I don't think I'm going to be diving tomorrow.
