I have been back in the Philippines for about a month now, the weather this year has been more wet than it normally is. Two nights ago Typhoon Nari hit us hard in Tarlac, these are the most powerful winds I have ever seen. Now two days after, the city is still without power. I have been charging my laptop at the generator-powered bus station and using their free wifi, at least until the security guard caught me today using the power plug that is supposed to power the pump for the goldfish pond. I tried to explain to him that gold fish do not need much oxygen, but he was not hearing me out.
