Once the air kicked on, the entire bus REEKED of the latrine at the back. I had my scarf wrapped around my face for the entire trip, and I noticed other passengers had done the same. I was profoundly grateful that I only had to travel one stop!Once the air kicked on, the entire bus REEKED of the latrine at the back.
