Since it’s so difficult to navigate this city, we’ve gotten a driver whenever we need to go into town. We pay for 4 or 8 hours together, which makes it cheaper. I have to say that it’s really nice having a driver. You don’t have to worry about finding directions or a parking lot. He just drops us off at the front door and waits until we’re done. I can imagine how nice that would be in real life. Just hop in the car and tell the driver where you need to go, not ever having to worry about parking, traffic, or directions.

If you don’t have the money for a driver, there’s also these auto ricshaws (who knows how that’s spelled). They are very small cars with 3 wheels (more like a large motorcycle or 3 wheeler). They just drive up and down the main roads. You hop on and off as you please and a ride costs about 20 cents (US). They cram the people into an area that would usually seat 3. Last night, I was in one with 14 people total! It was a tight fit.
