    ... bus. When we arrived we were talking to the last about the shuttles and she asked us when we were planning to go. We said tomorrow as in Saturday and she explained that on the Saturday the mountain was actually going to be closed. No one was allowed up because the weather was so bad. They expected the conditions on the mountain to be at least minus 10 with winds of up to 60km/h. She basically said you'd only go up if you had a death wish.

    ... bars, Malteasters, Dairy Milk (obvs) and bananas. The bus collected us from outside our hostel at 5.45am - making us feel very depressed as we left Rach fast asleep in bed.
