I had my doubts about the $300. They were confirmed today when I was told through an interpreter that the detective could not find anyone to come up with $300 to give to me as a guarantee for finding the camera. Considering I had to pay $30 for petrol to get to Warang yesterday, it doesn’t surprise me. It was a dumb idea (the $300) in the first place.
Eventually it was decided that they would try to contact me through the interpreter once they found the camera. The detective is adamant that he will find it. He suspects the son of the guesthouse owner. I told him that there is no way that he could have done it. He was with me the whole time.
Anyway, at this present moment in time I hold no hope of the camera being found. This little point and shoot film camera will have to suffice until I can get my hands on a new digital camera.
Today’s riding was fairly easy. I am getting a little tired of the scenery though. More high walled valley, with the river running down it.
