Against the advice of locals, we opted to take the public bus from Jaffna to Mannar along the coast road. We were told it was going to be bumpy but we had no idea what we were getting ourselves in for and the only seats left were the ones right over the rear wheels, the worst seats in the house. For the next four hours we endured a bone rattling journey, along the ‘highway’; a non paved, clay road. Bouncing high out of our seats regularly, we eventually reached Mannar, our bags, which had been in the trunk, were covered in a thick layer of dust and so were we, another memorable journey to add to the list; the bus from Jaffna to Mannar was one we weren’t going to forget in a hurry!
