... a little more. *Corumba- After the first 20 hr bus ride, we arrive at the border town of Brazil & Bolivia. We get off the bus at night, with no hostel booked. We spot an English couple as we get off, who we have a chat with. Then a dirty homeless man with only 2 or 3 teeth greets us and offers to direct us to a hostel. He speaks perfect English.

We pulled out of the terminal at 8PM sharp. A good start I think to myself. I´m quickly regretting ...
So the bus journey was truly awful/surreal. We woke up at about 1.30am at an absolute standstill. There were lorries and cars just stopped on either side of the road. We never worked out why but we were stuck pretty much for 3-4 hours! For a lot of the time we were stuck next to a cattle truck as well so the smell of cows was very strong! On top of that we had clearly reached the more jungle area as it was starting to get so hot! I changed out of my ...
