Second snag - no lockers. Okay, maybe they will let us in a movie with our bags. Let's get our tickets first. Third snag - ...
... not there. Then a more local driver gave some assistance. Our driver finally made it to the hostel just in time for us to pass out for the night. Almost a full 24hrs worth of travelling (seems to be the norm for us, judging by multiple
