anda-bolinao roadtrip......

___________________





As the only Island Municipality of
Pangasinan, traveling in and
out of the has been a struggle.
Lucky if you have a boat and your
barangay is
somewhere in the southern tip near
ALAMINOS. Then again, for those
who need to take the bus have to wait
for the barge servicing
MALong- KATUBIG area.


That was until 1997 when Ramos
finally delivered a long forgotten
promise of past administrations
to connect Anda to Mainland Pangasinan
through Bolinao Channel.

That's JOSH, sick and tired of being sick and tired and is ready to be hit by a truck. But automobiles are rare in this part of the world so I he's still alive.haha





And that's me seemingly unhappy with myself....kunwari lang.keke

If I may note, one very positive development in the past few years is this building which out of nowhere ended up in the hills of nearby Catubig, the Little Sisters of the Poor founded by Jeane Jugan of France.

I originally thought that the FRENCH are self-centered. I guess I am beginning to admire them now.......

This will prove to be an installment. Hope you can follow us in our next stop in Bolinao!!!!
