What would make for a nice follow-up after spending a Sunday afternoon at the cockfights? For me, it’s taking a walk through the Marketplace at sunset. The temperature drops just slightly and even more vendors come out from all directions to fill the streets with people, music and food! But first I went down the street to the local Catholic church and Convent to get some rest at the nice grounds there.
From there I usually make my way through the crowd and check out what I might need for fruits/veggies. I don’t get them until I’m ready to leave so I’m not lugging them around, even though I bring my small backpack along for camera, water, etc. All in all it’s a nice way to spend the end of the day, meet a few good people and get some exercise. 🙂

After 49 years living in Southern California, USA, I decided to move to the Philippines despite never having been here before. I spent a year getting all the information I could online and in July, 2012, I took a leap of faith and transplanted myself first to Mactan and then began my trek through Cebu, Bohol, Panglao, Moalboal, Dumaguete, Bacong and now living in Cebu City, here in the amazing Philippines.
Starting in January of 2019, I will begin a slow trek through Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and possibly Malaysia, China and Japan. My itinerary is open with no big rush since I hope to share in detail what each place is like as I enjoy it for months at a time.
I am a single man taking an honest look at all that Southeast Asia has to offer, one day at a time. I hope you find my channel informative and/or entertaining. 🙂
I hope you will make use of the links I provide as they help to support some of the costs of making this channel possible. Thanks!
