Head colds, dented doors, and a day trip off the island

Head colds, dented doors, and a day excursion off the island

Sunset from ferry on way back again to Dumaguete.

Ah, it’s definitely great to be sitting down for a web site entry and listening to 90.9 WBUR (NPR) streaming on my Pc.  I totally dig NPR and BBC.  Even when the news is poor, the distinguished British accents appears to be to make the lousy news a little bit a lot more palatable…..

My birthday was this earlier weekend, and I spent it bedridden with a definitely terrible head chilly.  Basically, I put in about two days just lazing about attempting to get by the worst of it.  Sara was gracious enough to select me up some area variations of Robotussin, invest in me fruit, and make up some tasty hen tinola soup with malunggnay, a indigenous plant that is intended to be a superfood.  I was organizing on managing myself (and Sara) to a nice supper for my b-working day, but was so stuffed up that I could not style anything at all.  Virtually a 7 days afterwards, and I am still congested and feeling like crap.  If it does not apparent up before long, I might check out taking a 10 day antibiotic – you really do not have to have a prescription to get them in the Philippines.

Sara is nevertheless doing the job on her bike using competencies.  She experienced her 2nd crash this previous week, this time hitting a metal rollup doorway and putting a quite pleasant dent in it.  The injury afflicted the functioning of the doorway, so we experienced to shell out to get it preset – 700 pesos/$16.  Like I mentioned just before, I hope all of her crashes are so benign.  Doors and chairs are straightforward to fix – bones are a bit extra challenging.

Dented doorway. Much better than a dented Sara…..

We are moving into the pink house this coming Wednesday.  It must be an easy transfer, as we don’t have that significantly stuff.  It will also be great due to the fact Sara will no longer have to continue to be at her boarding household as we  will have a number of bedrooms to accommodate her odd (4 AM to 1 PM) operating hours.  There is a little bit of drama with the community family members there (with each and every other, not with us) over street entry, and I hope they can perform it out so I can hold the Pajero parked at the residence.  Much more on that in a different put up.

I took a nice day trip to Cebu island the on Thursday.  I took the Yamaha in excess of on the Ro-Ro (Roll on- Roll off) ferry and traveled up to Moalboal (about 70 KM’s) to go snorkeling.  Together the way, I stopped off at Kawasan Falls, which is fairly well known as a waterfall spot.  The greatest component is it is ‘off time,’ so the waterfalls and resorts ended up really significantly empty of visitors.  I seriously get pleasure from traveling by motorbike in the Philippines, and the western freeway on Cebu island is fairly stunning.

Cool river on method to falls.

A single of the lesser waterfall sections at Kawasan.

It is Saturday so I am off to the fitness center following a couple cups of coffee at MacDonalds.  Later, Sara is planning on using me out to supper (pizza!).  It’s nice owning a rich girlfriend, I convey to ya.

However more proof that Farcry 3 requires area in the Philippines!

I understood at Kawasan Falls that I had been in the Philippines for a little bit in excess of six months.  To rejoice the occassion, I sat down in the middle of a river primary to the falls and shot a quick summation of why I am enjoying everyday living so significantly listed here.  Check out the video and gimme a thumbs up, if for nothing at all else than the interesting landscapes driving me.   ?
