28/1/92

We bussed out to Peshawar in pouring rain and we had to book two extra seats for our luggage so we could keep it inside out of the weather. In Peshawar, we booked into the Tourist Inn Motel, run by an amiable guy with one eye and a penchant for hashish. On the wall of the patio area was an endearing sign saying:

TOURISTS INN MOTEL

CIATED IF THEY KEEP THE

EXPANCIENCE THINKS TO

THE RECEPTION OTHER-

PONSIBLE. MOTEL OWNER

[Translation: we appreciate it if all customers would hand their expensive things (expancience thinks) to the reception, otherwise we are not responsible for theft.]

Later on, up in the main street, we met a couple of Aussie guys and had a yarn with them then we got something to eat at a restaurant. At the motel, we drank coffee and talked until the power went off and we went to sleep.
