... s, but again couldn't get a picture either. So plenty of nature on the trek home to keep us going. One compatriot we won't forget is a stray dog who kept us company pretty much most of the way, right up until we'd got to the first campsite. The only reason the dog left us here was that we stopped to get some breakfast in the restaurant and the waiter shooed the dog away. I wonder if he had not done this, would the dog still have gone all the way to the main entrance with us, I'd ...

... wrinkle in the whole trip was that the coach tried to take us further into town beyond the bus station. The local taxis got a bit upset, when we tried to use a minibus. We ended up back at the bus station and getting a different set of taxis.
