... totally undeveloped looking scrub forested land. The highway stops for services were much like we have in North America and no matter what angle I tried I could not make them very photogenic! Our B & B, as it is self described, needed for us to have four pair of sharp eyes to see the turn off sign and a ring of the entry gate to allow us to enter. we have pleasant motel style rooms in the middle of nowhere, but quiet we assume unless there are more trains ...
