New Tank

The new diesel tank is coming along. The bottom was laid-up Wed and seems to be curing OK.

This being Easter week, things are slow, what with Holy Thursday, Good Friday, (special) Saturday, and Easter Sunday. There may even be a Hangover Monday this week, who knows! Needless to say there's no more progress.

The power went off in the apartment yesterday about noon, (no fan and a hot day) so Trinda decided we should take the bus down to Cebu and catch a show in an air-conditioned theater. We arrived an hour later at a closed gate. The mall is closed for Easter. The power was back on by the time we got back, two one hour plus bus rides.

Did I mention that the average Philippino is a much smaller person than I or Trinda? The bus has 3 seats on one side and 2 on the other like small planes, BUT the bus is only as wide as the average 9passenger van! So 2 1/2 hours with only one cheek on the seat and my knees shoved into the seatback in front of me is a great way to spend a day.
