The trip starten out great! The TBS central was similar to an airport, and everything went smooth there. Our buss Journey was initially ok. Spaceous seats and not much to complain about. Around halfway through the trip the bus stoped at a station and, without explanation (our driver did not understand any english), we had to change bus. This bus had a lower standard. Filthy and without seatbelts.
