Ramadan = Indonesian New Year?

日前坐小巴聽得旁邊的太太跟另一太太說,她的印傭正過印尼的新年,日出後已不能進食,要待至傍晚。香港人 .... 現時其實是回教的守齋月Ramadan。

Long-distance Bus

The best long-distance bus I'd ever tried

Argentina: The seats are so wide and good service. Some bus companies even served red and white wine for meal. However, the price of bus ticket is sometimes more or less same as domestic flight price (promotional fare).

Mexico: Comfortable

Turkey: Comfortable

Sleeping at the airports

sometimes for saving coz just a few hours for transit; sometimes for security (I dare not to go out at mid-night).

Dakka, Bangladesh: The security of domestic terminal was so nice whom allowed us to stay there till dawn. however, the terminal had many mosquitos.

Caracas, Venezuela: This SUPERB airport got no chair in both departure and arrival halls. i slept on the bench of fast food shop after its closure.

Bangkok, Thailand (new airport): This airport equipped with powerful A/C system. I thought I slept in a freezer!

Doha, Qatar: Most of the chairs had armrests and the lighting was too bright also!

Manila, Philippines: All chairs are made of steel and too cold for sleeping!

Los Angeles, US: Comfortable for sleeping but the cleaning work and big TV caused me hard to sleep.

Kaohsiung, Taiwan: Though airport closes after the last flight at midnight, the security allow passengers to continue to stay inside the terminal. The chairs are hard seat and very uncomfortable for sleeping!
