The journey to Granada was interesting travelling again, the very typical local bus travelling as I know if from Asia: We were already surprised by the cheap price the taxidriver offered from the ferry to the busstation, it turned out that he was hoping to drive us directly to Granada. We ignored his comments that the bus had just left and the next would only leave much later and take a long time, that it would be dark by the time we reach etc. and his price went down from initially 40$ to 25$ but we insisted on taking the bus (about 1$) and when he dropped us at the market where the busses leave he was quiet frustrated and didn't even help us to unload our luggage anymore. We found the chicken bus ready to leave in less then twenty minutes, early enough to get a seat, had the luggage stored on the roof as usual and buy some food, they sell e.g. Tacos in little plastic bags and the sellers squeeze themselves one after the other through the already full busses until they leave, regardless if already ten Tacos, Refrescos or whatever yellers had entered the bus before them.  We finally left with a bus fuller than full and dropped and picked up people at every corner. This is the chicken bus travelling :-)
