The day began with a calm Dragonfly hunt before heading to the big smoke
Well the trip to Bangers was quite eventful, all went well till we were about 70 kms away then it just got more and more congested. We think we did manage to get the best route to the airport though when going through a toll road booth we got stopped by a policeman, he wasn’t very happy with us. As you can imagine it’s not the best place to stop and they wanted Anthony out of the car, we were really distressed as we didn’t know what we had done wrong. The policeman couldn’t speak a word of English but Anthony slowly worked out that we had crossed a solid white line in the lanes leading up to the toll booths…..a very big no no. I mean what tourist would be looking at the road anyway in that absolute schamozzle coming up to toll booths, the traffic is crazy and we really have to shuffle to get in the right lane. He wanted to fine us so we were happy to pay but you could only do it at a police station, and then it either seemed too hard or maybe we will get a bill later through the hire car company but thankfully he let us go. Phew what a relief I can tell you. I took a little video as I was left in the car twiddling my thumbs,quite stressed couldn’t think of anything else to do.
