Monday Mellow Yellows: Plastic chairs

I’m currently traveling back home after attending a five-day project planning workshop in Tacloban City.

As some of you may know, Tacloban was massively devastated by last year’s Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan). From my hometown of Roxas City, I took a bus that would take me to Iloilo City. There, I took a plane to Cebu City. After arriving in Cebu City, I then boarded a boat to Ormoc, then a bus to reach Tacloban. All in one day. I arrived in Tacloban tired and famished and ready to call it a day.

It was a great day for traveling – the skies were clear and the sea so calm. While waiting for our boat to Ormoc, I noticed that there were only a few passengers; the waiting lounge was sparsely populated.

Where have all the passengers gone? Probably not too keen to travel as, after the most recent Typhoon Ruby’s visit (international name: Hagupit) in the Visayas region, another LPA (Low Pressure Area) was sighted along the Visayas-Mindanao area.
