Day 23 - 29th April
Sooo that was not a great nights sleep! My poor leg hurt in every position I slept, there were dogs singing outside all night and the silly Chinese girls got up at 5am to leave! Are you kidding me, all that agro over a bed you were sleeping in for 5 hours.. You've got to be having a laugh!

We reach Oslob and in particular, Tan-awan, after the lengthy early morning drive, and pay 3700 pesos as fees ...
... and I'm right. Over the next 30 minutes we pick and sometimes drop off passengers until we are full. I have my backpack between my legs and my suitcase next to me. Across from me is a pregnant girl, next to her a young mother and child. At the front and the second to board is a woman who I thought was a man. She is wearing a loose t-shirt and has short hair and jeans.
When passengers want to get off, they tap on the ceiling of the van, usually with the coins they are ...
