be careful choosing your border crossing into cambodia, there's an infamous "scam bus" running that'll rip you off converting yr money to Riel and drop you off in the middle of nowhere at a rip-off hotel.

not really! i want to go to cuzco at some point to meet up with my friend, who is going to be on extended fieldwork near there somewhere. and i'd like to go to lima too. i haven't really thought about it too much because i didn't know i could definitely take the holiday until last week. recommendations please, anoraks!

Scream! This time in 3 weeks Chris and I should have landed at Newark, and be in the bar awaiting the connection to Orlando, sipping Sunset Wheat beer with a wodge of orange on the side. Or still in the immigration queue, depending on how many people forget to fill out the I-94 before landing, teehee!

3 weeks!

How long are you planning on staying in Morocco for?

Are you taking the ferry to Ceuta or Tangiers? Be warned: we got bribed by the guards crossing the border at ceuta. I wouldn't take any of your claims about your paperwork being out of date with a pinch of salt!

not sure. few weeks or months. so far as i understand it, yr allowed 3months off the bat and extensions are easy enough.

i'm going from algeciras to tanger. that's the plan anyway..

i have some experience dealing with cops re:visas and managed okay, saying that, i speak no languages of any use in morocco, so it could be a challenge.

A question

Post by String Bean Jen » Tue Jun 30, 2009 11:37 pm

Brits: Is it safe to assume that a majority of you (them?) go out of town for bank holiday weekends, particularly the ones during the summer (May and August)? Do you head off straight after work on Friday? Just curious.
