... to the place but Nico refuses to pay 150 pesos between 3 for a tricycle(£2.33) so we get the bus (.47 pesos each) I ask you!!! Well. We ask for Oslob and they take us to Oslob, we ask where the whale sharks are and told 9 klms back the way we came. We pay a tricycle 150 pesos to take us there, well I ask you but we have a good laugh about it, even more so due to me sitting at the back of the tricycle in what fitted me like a baby chair, Princess nearly wet herself or as ...
