Unlike first world countries with all their rules and regulations, this bus was used as means to do everything. Vendors would take enormous sacks of goods to markets, bicycles without owners were delivered to houses, shopping bags ...

Day 7 - Saturday at the beach

After yesterday's Biking Bad experience, our intent today was pure relaxation. Nothing more difficult than lounging at the beach. Finally Robin gets the day she imagined. We slept in, well one of us did. I took my morning walk and Robin joined me for our standard fruit and cereal breakfast. About 10 we set off for the beach. After much discussion, I convinced Robin we should give the bikes (a ...
