... there saying goodbye to two women and wasn't taking the bus anyway.

When things settled down a little, it turned out these two women didn't have tickets and other people did, so they kicked the women off and I was able to snatch the window seat :D

The soldier from the bus the day before appeared!
At first I thought it was just because he was up and taking another bus and wanted to say goodbye, but then he asked for ...

... financial career seemed slightly inferior but thanks to good humour, good music and some amazing scenery we all got on like a jeep on fire.
