Got persuaded by my bus driver to check out a different hotel to the Flamingo, the one that I had stayed in before. Though it wasn't as good I was too lazy to change once I was there, it was only for one night after all!
Of course my evening routine did not change. Sunset, beer, fish BBQ and gelato.
I said goodbye to Annie and Jason before returning to my hotel, the Annex of Abdullah, to watch TV in my room. I think it's the first room I've had that has had a TV in the room and I made the most of it before falling sound asleep. Well deserved sleep that night after the late night shenanigans from the previous evening.
The next morning and at 5am I found out why my hotel was called the Annex of Abdullah. I'm guessing that Abdullah's was the mosque that I think had placed a loud speaker either directly on my roof or pointing at my room. I nearly fell out of bed I jumped so much once the call to prayers started. Not too much to report from today apart from a bit more street wandering. Chinese food for lunch. You can always rely on finding a Chinese restaurant where ever you are in the world! Stonetown had the China Delight.
Annie was a bit of a surfer chick and this got me thinking about learning how to surf in Cape Town if I got there early. Her and Jason where heading there next, although some other people had told me the waters off Cape Town were extremely cold and maybe I should wait until Durban! I'd also had a chat with a Swiss couple the previous night about Namibia and was now all excited to go there. Along with Ethiopia and Uganda, Namibia was one of my top 3 destinations I wanted to visit before I'd left Boston.
Back to Chef's Pride that evening. Tasty mango juice here, it reminded me a lot of traveling in India where Francois and I would always drink a couple of mango juices each day.
