    Bussing to Hobbiton

    A travel blog entry by gavin_davies on Mar 20, 2015

    An eight hour minibus to Lanquin was what it was. The bus was full of uninteresting couples. I grabbed a skank burger at a food place in Coban. One of those kinda places the driver goes out of his way to go to as he knows a guy, and there are no other alternatives. It was a posh place so I was expecting more than I got.

    I've also given up on reading Frankenstein. I got about a third of the way in. It's Robin's favourite book, so it was worth a punt, but Mr F just needs to grow ...

    ... of the hostel without paying. Later we did a bit of research and found that this hostel had a reputation for thieving staff. Apparently staff members regularly go through guests bags while they're away at Semuc Champey and take cash. So if you're heading to Lanquin and decide for some reason to stay at this overpriced place, don't leave any valuables in your room, or in the lockers provided in the office. Just keep all your cash on you at all times. Or better yet stay far, far away from El ...

    ... wasn't any room to move at all. A couple of them sat on the bench with us, while the rest of them stood or crammed in any way they could. Many were standing on the outside of the truck just hanging on and others were sitting on top of the bars hanging over the road.

    The drive from Lanquin to Semuc Champey lasted about an hour and it was bumpy and hilly. We were sitting and we were having a hard time just holding on. I could only imagine how the people who were ...

    ... it was either that or the chicken bus - which meant that when the bus was three hours late the next day, there wasn't much we could do about it except sit in a hammock on the hostel's roof and read for a while. As I am currently reading 'War and Peace' it meant I was able to get through about 0.01% of that ridiculosuly long book! The reason for the delay was apparently something to do with the tyre, so when it turned up we thought that there would be nothing ...

    ... town was watching that while the other half were madly supporting Barcelona against Real Madrid in El Classico. Despite being dressed like wise men or priests (Zoe thought arabs) some of the men in the procession were more intently looking at TVs in the bars and restaurants to see the score than focus on the procession. We are heading to Nebaj next which is over 2000m but that involves us getting a bus at 5am tomorrow not ...
