Around and about

We haven't taken many pictures in areas outside of the hotel because we have been so busy looking for houses but here are a few:

These are called jeepneys.  They originated after World War 2. When the army left the Philippines, they left a bunch of jeeps and army trucks. The locals converted them into bus-like affairs.  Now they are a major form of public transit.  As you can see, this is a newer one.  15 to 20 people will sit in the back.

This is a quick drive-by picture of the Cebu temple.  We were on a house hunting drive.

Another form of public transit called a tricycle.  It's a motorcycle with a side car on it.  Believe it or not, they can have 4 to 5 people on this.  (3 in the side car, one sitting behind the driver with legs hanging on this side, even one on the back with legs hanging off the back)

Beautiful flowers around our hotel.  There are SO many.  We found some plumeria that smells so sweet.

There are goats all over.

Just native vegetation outside of our hotel.

Going for a walk.  BTW it's HOT!

Another form of transportation in the small villages.  Called a tricicat.  It's a pedal bicycle with a side car.

And a couple pictures of dinner at the hotel.  :-)
