I was starting to get a bit nervous, it was 9:30 pm and I had no idea where I was, or if I'd be able to get petrol. I stopped at another petrol station. Same deal, cash only!
I knew I was coming closer to the edge of the mountain range as the air slowly got warmer with every hill I descended. I came through a very small village and ...
