7/6...had to be up early today for our tour. It was quite pricey in the first place but then you still have to hire snorkel gear! Which lucky for us we had our own masks. Eventually got to our boat and hopped across to the first island. The captain saw a dugong on the way there. So here we spent most of the day. The snorkelling was good at least. We ended up having lunch at 11..finally left here at 1 and went to the next island. This one was just for swimming ...
... different colour other than a 3" ring around the bottom of it that wasn't touching my body. Words cannot describe how uncomfortable it was!!! We walked back to the main village to get some food and air con, then walked over to the beaches.

The obvious attraction is the underground river, which is pretty nice, high roofs of limestone in a winding underground passage by boat is pretty cool, but the point of the river being a natural wonder is its length. And you barely delve into that ...
... a white person before. It was slightly unnerving. We got back on the road and kept talking to our driver in our ongoing plan to keep him awake. Ahead of us on the road we could see a lorry wobbling into all lanes. Our driver said the lorry driver was probably asleep!! As we kept him talking, we learnt lots about the history of Manila, it's churches and we saw the early morning flower market. It was about 4am by this point and the streets were so busy, people always seem ...
