Shortly after setting off in our "Superbus" the tarmac soon turned to dirt track. We were motoring along for a few kilometres on the mud before grinding to a sudden halt to manoeuvre around some obstacles blocking the road. I suspect this will be the nature of the rest of the journey, will be a stop and start affair. My seat on the bus is knackered and doesn't go back all the way, everytime I recline, it just pops back-up to the vertical position over a period of 5 minutes, great! It's going be a long, and uncomfortable couple of days. It's all character building stuff though.
