This weekend was a long one in the Philippines. The National Elections are being held and the Government here, as it does, has allowed the locals a holiday to vote. This means there’s no one in the office, predominantly, so we decide to take off to the Island off Laguna (Called Mindoro) where the Filipino resort of Puerto Gallera (and it’s variations) exists for the pleasures of the Filipino tourist. I say this because, as we found out, we are like martians when we are there. Nothings really geared towards dealing with Foreigners and when Sao tried to convince them she was Thai, there was a lot of incredulous looks and disbelief. I’d think there are not many Thai’s going to this resort area.
