I got where I needed to go eventually and more cheaply than an airplane. I got where I needed to go eventually and more cheaply than an airplane.
The bus smelled really, really strongly of pee. And we were on one of the old buses, so the cloth seats held onto the pee as well as were incredibly uncomfortable.
