Travelling with the local buses and minibuses is still a real highlight. Either you get stuck in a roadblock and people on the bus not wanting to pay an extra 10 cents to go on… big argues break out and finally they are paying except me as the guy from the roadblock simply ignores me... or you are squeezed into a minibus for hours.
