months, and I'm looking for some travel advice, if anyone can help. For
instance, I gather that it is better (and cheaper) to stay in a
B&B/guesthouse than in a hotel, and that the best way to travel is to hire a
driver. But I've no idea how one goes about finding a good guest house and
a reputable helpful driver.
Anyone have any pointers ?
