Transport

Find info on hitchhiking at Hitchwiki.

The city buses are most common way getting around the city and are very easy to blackride. When you enter the bus, just lay your wallet on the scanner and go forward. The driver won't really care about you but if he will say anything or yell after you, ignore him. The drivers usually don't speak English so even if you talk to him he won't understand you and leave you alone. This is also commonly practised by the locals.
