Re: Reversing into a road and obstructing the oncoming traff

It’s happened to me recently three times now, in a matter of 6 months or so. I’m just wondering if the laws have changed?

Re: Aborigine on the menu

After having chicken sanitizer on one of the Gili Islands I would rather prefer some Aborigines. But this is all not that interesting as I am very sure everybody is just dying to know whether you shared your table :-)
