No rest for the wicked and it is a 3am wake up call. What was really frustrating was that our bus was supposed to pick us up at 4am but got there at 4:30 so could have slept in. To top it off we are not in the most comfortable bus but it is all ours so that is ok and it is only to this side of the border. We arrive and the queue is horrendous so …

The day had finally come and we were on our way to the airport to commence our Gap Yah trip.

get comfortable, this is a long one

... As I stated before, I was not in a mood to party. I wanted nothing more than to crawl into a hole and hide from the world for the next few weeks, not have a few hundred people come over my house.

As I guess in most cases, the news coverage makes it sound a lot ...

... we walked into the government buildings area where a lot of demonstrations have been taking place recently, there was not much going on there, but the place was still occupied by protesters. The protesters weren't really bothered about us, some of them seemed pleased to see us and were friendly, we walked around for a bit and then left.

    I would just say ok. Staff were great and tourist people were helpful. But nothing happened there. Everyone just slept and left. I went to other hostels where all backpackers were chilling together watching films etc but not here unfortunately. Your either in ur rom or out the hostel
