|Not a comfortable bus|
|Made another friend|
When finished I said I had to go, catch the bus. "Theres no bus in the evening" says Daniel, "you need to get down to the motorway and pick up a through bus". "You need a lift" he says, "I can drop you down there if you pay for the petrol" So we get in 'the warrior', his ancient Lada Niva held together with duct tape & bungee cords. Luckily I didn't have to listen to Daniel's chat as the noise from the transmission drowned out all other noises!After an interminable journey at walking speed, he dropped me at the motorway toll booth, soon after a bus came through that dropped me at the bus station, I then caught a taxi back to the flat.
When I totted-up all I'd spent, it would have been cheaper to hire a car, so thats my decision made, next trip out of town will be by hire car and damn the cost!
