18/9/89

Porridge for breakfast then lazing round was very much how much of the morning was spent.

Linda and I left the hotel at about 10:30 and went to find the Post Office. We met Skip and Snake¹ there and after we had posted our mail we all went in search of the ice-cream parlour. We found it after ½ an hour and it was closed! So we had a drink at a nearby pub then walked back to the camp.

We spent the afternoon lazing around and in the evening, we negotiated the sale of a painting² for $US10 from a native salesman.

¹ Snake had been so named because he had been hallucinating one evening after smoking some particularly potent ganga and had seen a snake coming out of the truck!

² The painting was a river scene painted in enamel on a flour-bag.
