This has nothing to do with the actual trip - thought I'd share a little on how folks live here. This is the lounge room where we're staying (you can see the wooden couch bottom left of pic.

Well we went to Tiwi Hot Springs with a cast of thousands . . . . . well 15 of us in the car actually. Bit of a tight squeeze, but we made it.

Roadside guttersThis pic is probably a little misleading. The gutter starts at the TOP of the moss - and this is not one of the deep ones. On the side of Mayon they are man deep. No warning risers or bmps to let you know you're about to fall in. I would have thought it would deter people frokm overtaking on the inside, but I've seen a few people come a cropper.
