    Finally read your great tips after my first visit to this page ages ago. One of our group had the whole shopping money stolen in the market. I don't remember if I've been to that post office.

    DAO, no surprise, to see you made it also to Buja recently. Nice to read your experiences. Next month Co will go to Buja for 10 days for one of the local radiostations.
