... a bus from Caticlan and helpful lady brow beating a taxi driver to give me a better price. A couple of things that amused me: crisps called Ding Dong and Chavs Convenience store. I half expected someone to walk out wearing baggy tracksuit bottoms and a Burberry cap. Today, I've got an hour on a ferry and about 4 1/2 hours bus trip to Dumaguette.

I waited for twenty minutes, amused by the wolf whistling parrot next ...
... and sweaty, not that I’m not
used to being sweaty by now, very attractive but I’m past caring!
So what have I learnt about the Philippines so far? They
love their food, especially here in Iloilo! From the moment we walked through
the door after being picked up from the airport on Sunday 12th we

but felt like I should eat it as the ...
