The good thing about the Philippines is that you can find chorizo... Another heritage of the Spanish colonization! But I have not yet tasted this Philippine chorizo.
Chorizo for sale
The store where I took the picture was closed when I passed by. I also spotted, in the restaurant-bar-grocery-karaoke next to where I live, chorizo rice on the menu.
To be tested one day soon! And of course, the beer we drink here is San Miguel...
Still no whale shark
Otherwise, still no whale shark for this last day of diving in Leyte. Too bad. As a consolation, I had the boat to myself today. The group of five Chinese from Hong-Kong who were diving with me the previous days left. Phew. That means less flashes in front of the nudibranchs... I had a great time during the two dives of the day.
Tomorrow, departure at dawn... in the hope of catching a hypothetical morning ferry to the island of Bohol. I'm leaving Leyte before the big rush of the beginning of the season, according to Phil and Ron, the Aussie and the Englishman who run the Sogod Bay Scuba Resort. They are fully booked from February 1st. But I might find the crowd in Panglao, Alona Beach exactly, my next stop. We'll see!
