|train station Vic Falls|
On my last day in Victoria Falls, I went to the train station in the morning. It wasn't early, around 10 maybe. I wanted to buy a first class ticket to Bulawayo, and ended up with a second class ticket. My mistake for being lazy. But for my defense, I had to say goodbye to Claire whom I hung out with for a few days. She flew out to Windhoek (instead of taking the bus). So I had my second class ticket which cost me USD 10 instead of the USD 12 for the first class.
After that I had until 7 in the evening to take full advantage of the day. So I walked down to the bridge where I watched a lady bungee quickly. As I did all that in December 2010, I did not feel it necessary to repeat this quite expensive activity. After that I went back to Shoestring where I spent the rest of my day. I read, played pool and ate a burger before leaving for the train station. A guy from the backpackers brought me over to there around 6.

After a second beer we went to sleep. I knew I shouldn't have traded my Perfect Pillow against some painting because now, for the first time since I carried it with me, I could actually use it. But as it was, the pillow was gone, and the bag slightly less bulky, and my neck slightly uncomfortable. I didn't sleep a lot.
At the train station, two ladies handed over a flyer for their backpackers. The two were mother and daughter and were taking care to get customer to the family business. Instead of going back to Packer's Rest on 12th Ave, we were heading a little further out of town.
