Exactly. When I go to Cebu City and back, I use a very good driver, who has a newer toyota innova with a diesel engine. He does it for a living, driving tourists from airport to here, Moalboal, Ormoc, etc. Good English and we talk. He says it is so much cheaper in gas prices and mileage per liter. He told me most drivers like him here that does this have diesels. Great driver, btw, if anyone wants a fast trip for a decent price.
Just thought I would drop by and say hi (finally remembered my login )
Just a quick update and to report that rumors of my demise have been grossly exagerated.
While I will never be back to 100%, I am doing quite nicely, or better than expected
There are several things I am not able to do and one is to fly for more than about 4 hours due to cabin pressure, and that really pisses me of as the Philippines has been close to me for nearly 50 years.
The other is I can no longer play the piano, which was my means of relaxation and stress relieving.
I strongly believe that being active, in good health and reasonably fit has enabled me to get back this far.
BTW, I am 82 in a few months and going better than many younger than me.
Cheers and Keep safe guys
