... A school girl comes across and tells us near the end of our journey "next stop" in perfect English. Tram stop at least a mile from the ship. No signs yet again. Follow the promenade until the sealed off area for the docks. No signs to the terminal. Stop at the police station. No English. Nasty looking automatic across his chest. More finger pointing.

Today (Thu 23/4) we went to ...
... it's the low season all the restaurants are offing discounts and freebies to the passers by to get customers in and there was one very close to our hostel that had offered me a good deal 2 nights previous so we went to hit them up to see if that was still valid - it was. So we sat down to some free hummus and pide, with the promise of free tea or coffee at the end of the meal and 15% off the bill. Now we were seated at the very obvious table right at the front ...
