... we saw yesterday hundreds of these Mini Busses (some people call them Bemo over here).

These minibuses are based on compact Mitsubishi vans from the 80ties but it's nearly impossible to recognize their origin. The benches in the back are removed, the sliding side door is gone and on the outside and inside are plenty of plastic moldings attached to change the shape of the car. On top of this the whole thing is repainted in bright and contrasting ...

It's jam packed already and we end up facing the opposite direction of travel on what we assume are the last two seats. Of course it's not and little wooden stalls are brought on so that the aisles fill up too. We are all squeezed in before the music is turned up and we chug along to the ferry harbour. The bus is crammed, hot and uncomfortable, however the ...

There's also a foot-wide hole in the bathroom wall, about a foot long by six inches wide that sits about 8 feet up. It's unsustainable as hell (because all the A.C. runs right out there) and I'm deathly afraid the mosquitoes are coming in.
