Still Under the Weather

Still sick, but I tried to go out and do something. I had to go to the market and get food, of course. Ate some mixed vegetables and fish today. Specifically, pinakbet and daing. I enjoyed watching the sun set after a smoldering hot day. Night skies are particularly beautiful in the Philippines. The sky is much clearer in the evening compared to in the States. You can see significantly more stars. I went out for a night swim yesterday evening and enjoyed it except it was pretty chilly. The water was clear. I saw some glowing blue dots on the sand, and I have no idea what they are. I'll try to take a picture of them the next time I go. Once I recover from this cold, or whatever it is, I'll venture out and climb that mountain with a cross. Alright, well I have to run; I've spent too much time in the internet cafe already.

I still don't feel good. I stayed in yesterday afternoon. I think I'll do the same after writing this post. No pictures today. I'll post some tomorrow.

I've been traveling to the Philippines for almost 25 years, and it takes some time to adjust to the heat and the humidity, but you should feel fine in a few days. Do you have friends in Subic? I remember it from the old days when the U.S. Navy was still there, and Olongapo had some of the best nightclubs and rock bands in the world!

David, the blue dots are probably bioluminiscense from planktons. They're microscopic plant and animal life that emit a luminous glow when there is a disturbance in the water.

Yep coconuter.

This event occurs only a few nights in a year. So count yourself lucky having witnessed it. I also saw it once as a child growing up in San Narciso, about 30 minutes from your place. We spent a night at the beach, and the sea was glowing with millions of these star-like points of light, moving with the waves. Very magical.
