After negotiating a fare, we set off in a 1961 Renault, the hills are steep and the poor transmissions on these vehicles take a beating...

However, the change bureau was closed and while Solofo tried to knock on the door and wake them up, they wouldn't budge so we headed to the guest house for the night.
