Day 5: Leaving humbled

(Taken straight from the notebook verbatim)

We've been truly humbled. Sunny, the guy who stopped his motorbike for us invited us back and we slept in his room, beds being mats of straw laid on the concrete floor. New Year ticked over and they brought us a beer and insisted on nothing in return.

In the morning, Nick wanted so much to give them money and I don't think he really quite got the concept of humble hospitality and the idea of money being quite crass as a means to repay it.

Nick ended up giving Sunny his Kiwi blanket and I gave them my Chrsitmas edition of Viz, so they could have a good laugh at the adventures of Spoilt Bastard and Biffa Bacon.

2007 begins and we are indebted to the kindness of strangers.
