A travel blog entry by audrey_dh

Highlight: drove through the scenic road under buckets of rain pouring from the sky. Avoided a few mud slides, crossed a few flooded plains. Are we going to be stuck tomorrow?

The smell was something we had been warned of from the Sulphur and to start with it was pretty bad but we did soon get used to it in the hour wait we had outside the iSite for the connecting bus.
