We slept in again, ahh this is the life, and then we rented motorbikes to ride around the islands and go see the Chocolate Hills, a unique terrain of 1200 coral and limestone mounds that literally pop put of a relatively flat area and are generally brownish in color, whereby its name comes from. It takes Brian awhile to get used to his bike since its his first time, but after about an hour he's pretty much got it and we're riding through tiny villages, cruising the seaside, honking at all the little kids who wave at us, and flying around with a soft breeze and tropical scenery to keep us cool and entertained. It takes around 3 hours to get there, but we dont mind b/c the scooters are fun and we get there in one piece and the hills are pretty cool, not amazing or spectacularbut cool and interesting scenery. So after some photos we take off for some more motorbiking and to have lunch at a river restaurant I saw in a small town on the way. Well, what I saw wasnt exactly a restaurant and turned out to be a pricey river dinner cruise, so we just say we'll stop at a place by the sea, but we cant find one and I figure we'll just stop in Tagbilaran for some food. And then something happened on the way to Tagbilaran...
