Today I went to the east coast of Luzon, the biggest island of 7101 that make the Philippines. It was a really good trip with good company. It started early getting out of Manila, through the green mountains out to the pacific ocean. It was really nice out there. We did some work and after that we took a small boat (called banca) out to a small island for lunch. It was great.

Picture below shows a street vendor in Manila selling newspapers, cigaretts, candy, towels and more.
