    Congrats on the approval of your probationary 13A resident visa, topper! Now you really gotta be sweet to your missus!

    Re: hiking pics, yes - pics of topper hiking in lycra!

    Topper, there are beaches near you and Mt Kanlaon is just a few towns away. Most travel restrictions have been removed, so go explore your island! There's a nice eco-park in/ near Bacolod (forgot the name). I visited it many moons ago.

The year before that on another project in northern Luzon we had a Canadian Geologist shot and killed when someone opened up on the helicopter. That was blamed on the NPA but we had been paying them " progressive tax" not to do that shit. Turns out it was a 15 year old ifugao kid with a gun he stole of the cafgu. Nothing to do with the NPA
    Interesting story. The geologists name was Colin Spence per intragoogles

    Are you still in that kind of work?
