Journal Entry:
Actually managed to get an early start and were out of the hostel by seven thirty! The plan had been to go into town and use the internet for a couple hours before heading for Botswana. Unfortunately the lines to Harare are still down. Spent an hour restocking at the grocery for our jaunt into the deserts. Brett and Darrelle have been convinced to stick with us for a while longer so the five of us head for the border.

In Francistown (not too far into Botswana) we found an internet cafe that worked and several hours disappeared - and I wasn't on the longest! Even though it's getting late we decide to continue on, and end up camping at an unexciting lodge just outside of Nata. Early to bed.
