Where I stayed
Went downstairs to get a box from local shop so we could post some gear home. Constantly need to keep our rucksacks to 15Kg for flying and getting quite good at it. Packed the box and wrapped it with brown paper and we set off for the post office......that is the post office that is closed on the first saturday of each month. We drowned our sorrows with a nice English Breakfast Tea and a cinnamon bun and took the parcel back to the hostel. Wesley was still there and straight away said he would post later....no problem to them to do this...very kind.
At 5pm Mel came to take us to the Airport. Plane was at 7pm and left on time....usual queue for seats but we were ready and managed to be at 7and 8 in the queue...Silly games we play
Arrived early and we were met by Lionel ( another Malay name ) and taken to the Highlands Hostel. Up three floors carrying my bag and helping Hels. Lionel blew his tip as he only offered to help with 4 steps to go as he was busy on his phone......
First thing we saw at the hostel was a cat and 4 kittens about two weeks old ....Hels in heaven.
Chatted to two New Zealanders and discovered when asking where they had come from that they had been teaching in England for two years in Norwich and living in Gt Yarmouth....small world.
