Location: Johannesburg, South Africa

MapWe arrived in one piece with no flight or baggage troubles around 5pm. We were dead tired and running on about 4 hours total of sleep which was of course broken up by various body parts falling asleep and having to readjust. We had a bit of trouble finding where the hotel shuttles were, the directions we were given just said "follow the signs" and left us wondering "what signs?" We finally found where we needed to go and got on our shuttle. Our hotel for the night was less than half a mile from the airport so at least it was a short ride. We spent the remainder of the night watching t.v. and trying to stay awake to ensure we got into a normal African sleep schedule. Around 8:30pm we called it a night, lame I know, but hey, we were running on 4 hours sleep in the last 32 hours. We woke up around midnight, wide awake, but we forced ourselves to eventually fall back to sleep.
