I'm about over taking the bus now after being on the road for 3 months, up until now the buses have been alright overall but I'm stating to get motion sickness from them as they drive very erratic and jerky and fill them right up, i had 3 people siting on me lol i wanted to take a photo but it just woulda been a bunch of bums. On top of that all the cars and buses seem to bediesel  engines and all the exhaust was coming inside the bus, i almost threw up for the first time ever on a bus, maybe im just getting old

Other then that the towns pretty awesome has a amazing old Dutch fort which is where the tourists seem to stay found a nice guesthouse with good wifi clean rooms for only 1500 ruppies (had to bargain a bit though) 
just been relaxing while here, its a decent sized city if you eat in the fort its easily 700 plus ruppies if you go in town you can eat a amazing meal for 200-400 so I been walking into town, figure its good exercise anyways beyond that just taking it easy and chatting with my family via skype for x-mas  after pretty much living on the bus.

The people have all been very very kind and sweet and helpful and I've felt very safe the whole time i been here, Great trip Great experience very different from anywhere else i ever been
