When the long weekend approached, Stephanie and I took full advantage and took a trip out of the city to Wli falls (pronounced Vli). If the stars are aligned and the bus is not full and there is no traffic, the trip is a comfortable 3 hours. If you have my and Steph's luck, the bus is full and instead you have to fight your way into a trotro (van full of 15 people), and with traffic the trip is 6 hours. It felt more like 24 hours, sitting on a tiny flip-out version of a seat in a car with no padding, pot holes the size of a house, and stopping in every little town with hawkers (peddlers) running up along the side of the trotro trying to sell you massive grilled snails on a stick. No thanks, ladies!
