We arrived after 18hrs on the bus. There were plenty of police checkpoints along the way and we were boarded by armed policemen at all of them. At one such checkpoint, we saw a police dog going through the contents of a suitcase in a car.
We found a cozy hotel, freshened up, and met up with Hiram for lunch and fresh strawberry juice at a restaurant by the water. It was too much work to do anything else today in the heat.
