... sunrise means waking early and beginning your hike at 2 am. We settled into our hotel, and went to bed early. We had been unsure if we needed a guide, and our driver suggested one, so we forked over 20 bucks to bring a local guide along. The next morning we met him early, and headed on our journey.

Although it wasn't actually listed on the departure board - rather odd. I had prebooked first class tickets online. They had cost £8 each for the 6 hour journey. At the time (i.e. When in London and paying £20 a day to use the train to work) I thought that sounded like fantastic value for a 6 hour train. But ...
