... uni appeared and he joined us for lunch at the canteen beside our hotel. At this one you can pay in cash whereas at the others we tried you have to use your student cash card which we don't quite know how to top up yet.

... Fresh in town (popular with Westerners). Caroline showed me how to get a taxi expat style: walk into a 5 star hotel, pretend you’re staying there and have the concierge organize a taxi for you. Apparently this is also a good trick for posting mail. My driver had asked for the night off (social event) so left us at Elements Fresh. The taxi home (approx 30 min drive) cost us a total of $8!
