Once the storm passed I had two nice days before the next storm hit. That was a big one – the one that killed my iphone! Anyway in between the storms a Chinese guy also moved into MY bungalow. I had just started to practise some Mandarin and it was a great help to be able to practise my tones and say something that sounded close to what is was meant to sound like. (Li Tun thanks for your help I have a Chinese number now will post of FB later for you.)
Whilst it was nice we had a wander around the island and explored a bit. There seems a serious sandcastle building obsession in Boracay with huge detailed affairs being build, destroyed by storms, then rebuilt. The beach was really nice though and I can imagine in season it will be a lot nicer place to be although I imagine packed to the rafters.
After the second storm I was wandering along the beach surveying the damage thinking it was time to move on when I bumped in Toy. I met Toy in Panglao, he lives in Boracay but was travelling around the Philippines at the time. I thought he was in Europe so it was a nice surprise to bump into him. He was around for a couple of days before he flew I ended up staying for a few more days, enjoyed a Boracay full moon party and then headed off before I was grounded by another storm.
