Well- the trip took 5 hours. And once we hit the dirt roads, about an hour and a half into the drive, we had to shut the windows to safe ourselves from the dust. It was hot. Quite hot. And no air con. On the way though I friended the 3 boys from Denmark that I was sharing a seat with- and now they'll be trekking with us! It will add to the fun and it will make our cost per person drop. Can't wait!
