Being on an organised tour, we were ferried around in one of these tourist buses. Although, bus is rather too grand a description, most of them were just heaps of rust held together with a few nuts and bolts. Beware of rusty nails sticking out from the seats - I found out too late and ended up with a three inch cut to my leg which turned septic!

Public toilets don't exist, and 'comfort stops' are taken along they side of the road whenever necessary. Ladies use the bush on the right, men the tree on the left!
