I started reading and couldn't stop till I finished. I see that you are a very detail oriented person with great narration skills. What made it interesting was the way you have captured small incidents that happened on the way - like the daughter calming down the angry father, happy man swaying down the middle of the road
etc. Normally, I would have been annoyed and irritated by these but you have found humour in it and to make it interesting, taken pictures - just awesome!
Thank you for taking the time and effort to write this TL - you are now my inspiration for my future trips
