It was one of those 12 seater buses but I counted 19 people in it. There was a conductor collecting the money and sticking his head out the window, looking for more passengers. I had to get out at one stage to let people off. It was an experience. We found our way back to our BnB and had a ...

        ... getting a taxi or whatever) so it's bad form to get really aggressively low. So my deep and profound advice for this particular problem is make sure you don't always slouch down in a hotel restaurant and instinctively order expensive fish, clearing your conscience by thinking that you're paying the same as you would in the UK, and occasionally venture out of the gilded cage to a place that'll (usually) not make you run from both ...
