    ... an hour from Bahir Dar, so the driver pulled over and made us all get in another, super cramped minibus.
    But at least it had stopped raining so my backpack, which was on top of the van, had a chance to dry out a little (another good reason I keep all my clothes in freezer sized ziplock bags!)

    ... sat there while the diesel engine ticked over for another 20 minutes or so. I eventually nodded off and then was rudely awoken when a member of staff asked to see my ticket, again! I've already showed you it, you took my bag then you escorted me to the door in case I was unaware of how to board a bus, then you confirmed that I was to sit in seat 35, then you came to seat 35 to check my ticket again.
