As bad as the traffic was, the people were as friendly as ever. We caused quite a stir every time we stopped with people asking for "foto foto!" and for some reason always wanting to have their photo taken embracing us like we were lifelong friends. We were approached by a young guy one day who told us he was studying English, although clearly very much in the beginner stage judging from his blank expression to almost everything we said. He did however gush about how lucky he was to have met us, exclaiming: "I'm so happy! SO happy!" What can we say, that's the effect we have on people :)
This particular ferry was so crammed full of vehicles that the ramp couldn't close
Safety standards - what's that?
A typical meal on the ferry, served in a banana leaf
This photo doesn't even begin to describe the chaos we experienced that day!
Once in a while we did catch a break to take in the scenery
And a bit of feline love...
