Walked for nearly an hour to find cheap clothes. Success! I got some jeans (my old ones tore weeks ago), a new vest top, and...socks! I'm very excited. Oh, and I got a nice hair slide and wrist band too, $2 each.

There's a wrinkle or two
Smiling out through grey crowds
Wise words shared
Passed from flower
Good deeds recalled
From times past
But what now sits beneath the soil
Where are today's spoils
What fruits lie for youths labours
Where does the apple fall
Where once they had it all,
Now the toil is to find work
Not to till the land
But to bind the good times
to the new shoots
Seeking to create their own
Just for the record Greyhound buses are complete and utter shite.
Today there was no sign for where to catch the bus, no bus stop. We had pre-booked our tickets. We stood where the Greyhound had dropped people off when we'd passed that way previously. Another man was waiting too.The bus arrived 20 minutes late and drove right past us and 200 yards up the road. He let someone off and then left before we could get to him.We had an anxious wait while we figured out what to do. The cash machine at the gas station/store (the only one) wouldn't give out any money and we only had a bit of loose change. There's only 2 greyhounds a day and we didn't know if we would be allowed on the next one with our tickets for the earlier bus. We briefly considered walking - later discovered it 's 22.5 kilometres. Glad we didn't try that one.
Fortunately we discovered a local bus service which only cost about £1.25 each. Now I want a £15 refund from Greyhound. Their website has been rubbish too and they've already failed to reply to previous emails I've sent.
I guess that's what happens when a company has a monopoly. Somebody is missing a trick - a rival company that provides good service would get my vote!
