Typhoon Hits Cebu Without Warning
Yesterday morning I woke up to a storm and the lights going out. I thought, this looks like a typhoon coming in. I’ve only seen one but the weather just looked different enough that it was not your normal monsoon. Since it has been a drier monsoon season than normal, I reasoned that this is what we should have been getting all along.
To be safe, I asked Jessie to send one of the helpers out to get a newspaper. I thought if there was a storm coming in, we needed to know and could get the information from the paper. While she was out, banana bushes begun to topple and even tress where coming down. The wind was not equal to that of Typhoon Frank but Frank was a major storm. Quinta was likely a category one, though I don’t know.

Shifting Monsoon Winds of the Philippines
Last night I met a fellow expat at Liza’s seaside cafe. His name is Craig. While talking, i mentioned that I’ve been battling allergies for the last month. Criag said something like, but there are no seasons here, why would their be new pollens. I thought that made a lot of sense.

Friday, May 30th, 2008 at
Yesterday evening while on my walk, Jessie noticed a huge banner announcing SuperFerry routes leaving Bogo City Port. I will post more information soon. I know one destination is Leyte Province but I will obtain exact destinations and prices and post them on the forum and provide a link back to the forums to that post.

Bogo City is a beautiful place. I walk nearly every day and almost always take a camera. Bogo City is a fishing community. No, not everyone fishes but a large part of the city uses the sea to make a living. There is a wharf near my home. I don’t really know the name of it, I call it Bogo City Wharf. There is a larger Bogo City Port to our north but I have not been there. It is to far for me to walk.
