Talking

Hey all
No word from me for a while coz I've been in the mountain provinces of Luzon, Philippines...
-slipping around the smooth rock formations and ice clear water deep underground in the Sagada caves
-blissing out in hot springs in Mainit
-getting sore assmarks from being bounced around on the metal racks riding 'topside' on a jeepney on some of the roughest and most picturesque roads around
-hiking around incrediblly green rice terraces and natural waterfalls
-eating bad papaya first thing on the morning of a reaaaly long bus trip (NOT a good idea, spent the first half of trip spewing it all back up again, yuk)
-eating marinated pigs ears with San Mig at a bar
-just eating the masses of fantastic food they have here!

In Manila now, anyone up for a beer?

i love philipino food. chicken adobo, lumpia (my favorite), and this very tasty beef broth they serve with all their meals. i dont know what it is called but ana, if you can tell me the name so i can look up a recipe, id be more than gratified.

Thanks for the update Ana! Are you in Bagio? It's been a long time, but I remember visiting there....it was the only place in the P.I. that got a bit chilly !

I got a bunch of cousins there, and if they were members of this community, they'd be up for a beer with you !

Yo yo
Still in Manila (waiting to meet up with someone)
Joan: Boracay's not on the agenda this time but hopefully at least some of the other islands in the visayas are!
Matador: haven't come accross that particular delicacy's name yet but I know watcha mean and will keep asking about it
TP: damn brotha if you ever need website updates re: hostels, clubs to go to, great internet places (I'm at one now) etc I'm your girl. I could rewrite that whole LP for them if I could be bothered
Just call me the cool-and-cheap-place-to-be-in-manila goddess
