Since we had only a half day of a worker and I also needed a rest from my project of renovating in the v-berth area Kathy and I took a bus trip to the closest of the big shopping malls. I needed to visit the Ace Hardware and it was time to pick up some more groceries. The bus trip in was uneventful and we managed most things on the list. The difficulty came on our attempted return as all the direct buses were full, traffic on an early Saturday evening was terrible. We finally managed to be approached by one of the small local passenger carrying trucks who asked where we needed to go it was way past where he intended to go but a deal was made for 500 pesos and we were on our way. Of course that only got us 90% home. Next it was a peddle tryke to the main tryke teminal and finally a motor tryke home.
