Bus was on time, it was not bad, a new double decker, other than all seats are full, it is perfect.

The bus is showing some zombie movie with limbs chopping off and blood gushing out -- perfect for the viewing of family and kids which made up of the majority of passengers on the bus. Obviously, the kids here are not as sissy as their counterparts in North America.

In Abra Pampa, lots of people got off the bus, finally I got my seat, happy.
