There are people who sell things just on the street and walk in and out of cars that are driving along.
Pedestrians just seem to go wherever they want.
The Jeepney's (sp) are really cool and I hope to upload a picture later in the week.
We were surprised at the place we are staying. It is beautiful and we can have our meals outside! We have 2 swimming pools and a pool table outside as well. Our hosts are fabulous. They can't do enough to please us. We are all pretty tired - but we went out to a restaurant tonight and had a great dinner of traditional food. It cost all of 500 pesos each or about $10.00 each with a tip.
I bought 2 bottles of water - both 1 litre today and 2 small ice creams made with coconut milk and it cost me $1.70 or about 70 pesos.
Things are not very expensive - they are relatively cheap. We learned a bit about SIDC our host co-op today but we were not all at the top of our game due to the long travel day and jet lag. We are on our way home from the restaurant and we stopped to email and blog.
One thing that I did see today was a McDonald's or 2 - surprise surprise and some pizza huts.
We are all kicking back this evening as we have breakfast at 7 am and then we're off to visit some co-operatives. Looking forward to that. If you have any concerns they have hired armed guards for our guesthouse compound and we all feel safe. They don't really feel that it is necessary - but that wanted us to feel safe.
Will try and blog tomorrow as we may have a connection at the guest house and we could do it at a more leisurely pace. Keep well and we are having the experience of a lifetime!
