More buses.....

Today was another travel day as we headed north and east towards Kratie. This little town's main attraction is the Irrawaddy dolphin, which I hope Tam will be able to tell you more about in tomorrows entry as we attempt to find them! For today, we were pretty much just confined to a bus, as the 5-6 hour trip dragged on to 8 hours. Yawn! Top it off with a completely unusable toilet block at our last reststop (and that is saying something for us, as our standards of hygiene are not what they were!) and you have a couple of tired and grouchy travellers!

But we arrived safely and have a room in a hostel overlooking the river - very nice :-) After an early dinner, we retired back to our room to find that the door had somehow managed to lock itself shut with a bolt from the inside - strange! Anyway, after a few failed attempts to break into our room (reassuring!) the managers solution was to wait for our neighbour to arrive home for the night and then use the adjoining door in his room to access ours...... suddenly we're feeling a little less safe here! So we patiently waited in the lobby, in a stiffling heat, for an hour for our neighbour to return and then we were reunited with all our lovely stuff! Perhaps we should put something up against the adjoining door tonight to ensure no breakins......... :-)
