We went to the hostel waiting for the bus to take us to Haast. The bus was delayed. Did nothing but wait in that stupid kitchen. The journey to Haast again was uneventful, most of us sleeping with both fatigue and a late night. On arrival to a cold Haast and awful hostel, some of us went for a walk by the beach. This was nice! This beach has a lagoon. Bronwyn, Emma, Souskia, Paul, Will, Robert + Heather and I went for a walk. It was really really nice. I felt some sort of bonding going on. We went for a long walk, en route back, Emma suddenly realises she doesn`t have her handbag with her. And the handbag contains her passport(s), iPod and digital camera. Oops! So there we were, the task force searching on the beach to no avail.
We finally decided to run back to the hostel (it was close to 9pm, getting dark and we had to find our way through the fields). We were greeted there by Bronwyn and Souskia who said that they saw the handbag lying on the beach and took it with them. Oh the relief! Dinner was microwavable chinese noodles, slept by 11pm. Got to meet the Irish gang today - Emily, Helen, Ed, Karen, Ciara, etc. So that was good. I was really tired. The room was so-so, a bit crowded. And I felt suffocated in there.
