Well we arrived safely and are now really enjoying looking around and seeing how different everything is to back at home! The drive from the airport to the hotel was crazy!!! They do not have any rules on the road at all over here and the amount of motorbikes and scooters around is unbelievable! There is lots of overtaking and very few road markings…(People seem to use their horn for the sake of it – lol)
It is very hot and humid at the moment and it is quarter past 9 at night!!! We are at the hotel and having an early night! We won’t grumble about the heat but it’s just so different from the cold back in London. It’s also very busy and we’ve seen a huge group doing exercises in the square…which looked like fun!
People have been very friendly and welcoming so far so we are both looking forward to meeting everyone else at the volunteering house tomorrow.
