As I mentioned in the last blog, we all slept in varying degrees on the plane on Saturday night...but we were all woken up when they turned on the lights and came through with breakfast (well...other than Jen, John, Leonie and I who were jarred awake at 3:30am by the screaming child in their row whose parents appeared unphased and just let him cry it out).
I had just finished my breakfast and was so psyched that we had just under an hour until we landed, thinking to ...

They slept on the floor on thin mats in the 60s and 70s until the bunk beds were introduced and we saw the cards which identified the race of the prisoners and therefore which kind of food they'll be given etc. Apparently white prisoners should have a different diet to black prisoners, who should have a different diet to coloured prisoners...

... climb the mountain sometime this week :)
So when we got home it was actually good to have more time in the day to finish my paper. I ended up getting it done by 8 pm!! It isn't even due until midnight so I felt awesome! :D
The rest of the night I just relaxed and tried to start working on my outline for my history book test on Tuesday but I didn't get very far. So now it is time for bed, goodnight! :)
