Lovely little cottages - very good food in the restaurant, a few ants in the room, but this is the tropics after all. Nae internet unfortunately, but we were able to steal some wifi from the place next door, yippee! comfortable enough, and nice and reasonable.

After our relaxing 3 days we had to hit the road again as we wanted to get to Malapascua to dive with the Thresher sharks. That meant another couple of days on the bus. First day we were up early to get our hotel boat to the main beach. They kindly walked us to the area that the buses pick up, which was handy as it's just a random spot on the side of a road. While we waited we chatted to some locals and were even given some banana's for ...

... can't explain in words. I can't even begin to imagine how it looked only 5 months ago. Gloria tells me of the fear she felt as Typhoon Yolanda bore down on Malapascua, ripping roof after roof after roof off the houses in the village. As the deadliest typhoon in the Philippines on record, it is a miracle no one died on Malapascua, unlike the neighboring island of Leyte, where thousands of lives were lost.
The villagers are busy repairing guesthouses and resorts ...
... rounded of nicely with two Daquari cocktails and a Red Horse!!! Believe - true culinary delicacies in the Philippines. Said goodbye to Gary and Cheryl this morning they're destined for Cebu and then out of the Philippines - who knows our paths may cross ...
