28th nov. We woke in our palatial suit, it was the cheapest room actually, and all I could think about was the hotel breakfast, quell surprise! Well, it was included and apart from the fact that I could watch footy on the box last night, breakfast is one of my favourite things about hotels. It's not just the spread, it's the fact that you are obliged to try everything and eat as much as you possibly can. The ideal tactic is to set your alarm early, get down there as soon as it opens ...

What might have been a 45 minute drive from airport to hotel took over three hours. Huge lorries and ...
... flustered, and its accepted practice that if you are fortunate enough to have a seat, you will look after the bags of those standing: the slalom-style driving means they need both hands to hold on! It actually felt quite nice yesterday when the lady standing ahead of me plopped her bag on my lap with a head wobble and a smile, sort of like being accepted among the locals! The bus is also segregated, men at the back, women at the front, something we hadn't realised when ...
