Between packing up, getting all the previous batch of diary entries
emailed off and phone calls to Australia and New Zealand, we didn't get
out of the place until midday. Said sad goodbyes to all the friends we'd
made over the past couple of weeks.

Caught the right train, and even worked out our change in (hmm, can't
remember the place, and Kate has the notes with her)... anyway, made it
to Oxford.

The hostel was very strict with its rules - annoyingly so in fact. There
were signs everywhere saying you would lose your deposit if you did
anything wrong. That's right, they had a 'good behaviour deposit' - £5
says that you won't break any rules. They also charged £1 to look after
my laptop for the night.

Went to a fantastic Thai restaurant just over the road from the hostel
for dinner. Really nice food. Wandered through town for a bit, and
decided to go see "The Bourne Identity". The movie was good, though it
was rather expensive, the theatre was quite crowded, and there wasn't
enough legroom (grrr). Considering that I'd also had not enough legroom
on one of the trains. Oh well, such is life. I recommend seeing the film
in a better theatre though :)

They were re-furbishing the men's bathroom, starting 10pm that night, so
we all had to use the ladies. Luckily not too much of a queue by the
time we got back from the movies.

Our room mates in the hostel were nice - a couple just back from touring
South East Asia. The four bed dorm wasn't too much more expensive.
