Where I stayed
Having spent 4 days here to rest up after all the travelling I feel like moving on now, so off to Benoni port to get the fast sea cat across to Cagayan de oro.
The port is nothing spectacular like most ports I guess, buy a ticket for the viewing deck at Peso 550 about £7.00 for the 2 hr trip, As the sunsets over the Philippene sea around 6pm its still 28 degrees and there is a lot of people on there mobile phones looking and sounding worried. I have no idea of their concerns until i land and find out about the "TSUNAMI" that has just devastated the Japanese coastline and is on its way to Me!!
The town of Cagayan de oro is not a pretty place and very busy like many large cities here and a little unsettling upon arrival in the dark.
Manage to find a good hotel called the Pearlmont inn an old colonial style building and very English inside nice friendly faces and decent rooms and a cheap rate of about £18.00.
I have stayed up late to catch the news and think that it is ok to travel onwards.
Cagayan town is nothing to write home about a bit scuffy and tired and dont think its worth more than a nights stay over, which is what Im doing.
