... to walk back. We started off at a quick pace following Kunjang wiggling our way around and between cars and people and then the traffic began to thin out. Our 4x4s came by and picked us up. We drove a bit and hit another snag. And out we were again! Again, the 4x4s caught up and eventually we made it back to the hotel. Jacqui and I wanted to get to the post office and by now it was after 3 pm. We raced away and before we got to the post office, we ran into ...
... change of clothes was all we had time for before going to find a shared jeep to head back to the train station.

- After sunrise, went back to the guest house, hung out in the kitchen with Mingo till breakfast, ...
... slivovicè -which I don't imagine many have tried but basically it's just quite foul drink with no redeeming features. This is much the same. There isn't really any sweetness, fruit flavours or anything desirable, it's just wheaty, alcoholic tasting bluergh.
