Arrived in one piece via HONG KONG with Cathay Pacific
The Flight was OK even though it was 11 hours and 2 hours plus a stop over of over an hour.
I must say the food and the entertainment was far better than Thai Airways to Hanoi
More imaginative food and better Classic Films .
WE HAD THREE SEATS TO OURSELVES IN ROW 43 IN THE BULKHEAD –
ON BOTH FLIGHTS.
NOTE WELL… THAI AIRWAYS AND TRAVEL REPUBLIC
We are staying within 300 metres of Fuente Osmena Circle a central point in Cebu.
The room was not ready but we were given another room to park ourselves in and meet
in- laws, including Baby Annika not yet one month old.
She smiles and reacts to her mothers voice and is well on the way.
Mother looks well too and father such a pleasant Debt Collector you could meet.
The room eventually was paid for and is on floor 33 of a high rise block called Horizons.
APT DONT YOU THINK AND WITH VIEWS OVER THE PORT AND LUG HILLS
I’m reserving judgement but if you want you can Comment and I will contact you back.
The A/C works, water comes out tepid from the walk in shower and the kitchenette and
adequate with a two ring electric cooking and large fridge and freezer.
Catching up on sleep was the priority.
The drive from the North to Heathrow was taken along
with Storm Diana. It hissed it down and the wind was blowing against us,
but even so I stuck to under 60mph, letting the lorries pull me
along and wash the car with spray and the YETI achieved 64mpg.
Not like in Cebu.
The traffic is gridlocked most of the day from the airport into town.
Too many traffic lights and too little infrasructural improvements.
After a catnap we went to Robinsons Supermarket and stocked up on provisions.
Carrying the goods with a trolley my sister in law had bought for us.
The pavements are flood proof and steps up and down measure 12″ but are much better
than Hanoi, but then for tourists most is much better.
At 4am in the first morning, the cool of the day we dressed and set off for
Pasil Wet Fish Market. 90 peso each way by cab.
“Thats about £1.20p and big fresh huge
prawns at 300peso a kilo x 3 and made it up to 1000 peso.
Thats £4.35 a kilo.
Less than half the price of them in the supermarket.
So it was worth going for the experience.
We also bought two large white fish like Tilapia but seagoing not farmed and will give one to
the family in Cebu.
It getting to daylight now and at 6am its 10 pm at home so we went back to bed.
Its going to be another interesting day that we will tell you all about next time.
