It definitely wasn't helped by the guy scavenging for empty beer cans and drinking the dregs! The bus finally arrived and we headed back 5 stops to pretty much exactly where we set off from! Now nearly 7pm and a little frazzled and flummoxed that nobody (8 people!) seemed to have a clue on how to get to the city harbour? ...
