Topic: Swaggy Passengers
This came in from Larry Halpin:
How are you mate?
You probably don't remember me but we (wife Helen & I) were passengers on your eastbound trip in September '76. I was the Londoner who kept the float & Helen was the nice one who got the shits in west Pakistan & you dug out some bottled water you had been saving.
I've just started transferring all my old slides from that trip to digital which of course got me reminiscing so I decided to google "Asian Greyhound" & there you were.
I won't crap on too much now but I'd love to hear from you.
Now I'll explore the rest of the site - brilliant so far & I've only looked at the pictures of the buses & the crews & passengers list!!
The only things of note involving us was when I leant some money to another couple just before we crossed a border & the girl was going to repay it all in coins as they wouldn't be able to change them anyway - you stepped in & suggested it might not be a good idea. We also were one of the ones who stayed with you when the other bus that had been travelling with us took some of us to see some temples - can't remember the full story but they could only take so many, then when they returned there was some heated argument about the kitty money & things became a bit fractured for the last few days - basically the seppos against the rest.
All the very best Larry
PS You've changed a bit. I remember meeting up with you & the courier (can't remember her name) in Melbourne & you kept getting stared at by everybody because you were the image of Bruce Doull (the AFL player called 'the flying doormat')
