Thursday 18 June
We pack up and walk to the bus station after breakfast. We want to get to the next town so we can return to visit some ruins. Apparently one of the wonders of the world.
We have to rush to catch a bus/van because it's leaving sooner than we were planning! The bus stops at the ruins so we decide to get off and see them now rather than continue on and return.
It's pretty busy but we buy tickets and put our bags into storage. There are sellers and peddler's everywhere with souvenirs of all description, though similar to the man selling next door! The ruins are huge and extensive in amount for viewing. We buy tickets for another bus and wait outside for it. While we are waiting we talk to some men who work there in the tourist industry. Eventually the bus comes even though it's a little late. It's about 30-40 min till the town we are staying at. We get off at the bus station and head toward our accommodation with the help of a helpful policeman. It's further to the apartment than we thought and next to a fitness gym. The apartment is clean and has air conditioning. After we cool off and book tomorrow's accommodation we head out for dinner or a supermarket. The apartment has a kitchenette but it is bare except a microwave, fridge and coffee machine. No plates or utensils!!! We find no place that serves vegetarian food so we head to the supermarket and buy a few things. It's tricky too though to the lack of kitchen! Once showered we enjoy some food. Looking forward to air conditioned sleep.
