  1. Wow!81,000 visitors will certainly leave with an impression; lets just pray it’s the right impression…

  2. CJ says:

    81k visitors certainly is a blessing. Let’s hope they can get a bus.

    Since all we have is death trap scooters.
    Since we choose not to rent cars.
    Since we have taxis that don’t show.

    Buses would be the preferred method of getting around.
    But our poorly bus drivers are still at home with that awful tummy bug -hope they get well soon.
