Started the day at the LR office Cebu City picking up some promotional items. Had a nice chat with the office clerk. One funny and a bit provocative act was acctually that the local LR office is located right opposite to the office of FLP who's our biggest competitor on Aloe Vera Products. That was allmost hillarious I think.
Well next was a coffee and sandwich as a combined breakfast and lunch at bo's Coffee - nice service, very nice service.
So walking around the neighbourhood for a while untill I found myself completely lost. So decided to flag down a taxi and go to Magellans Cross. I was there yesterday with Joeven so I figured that would be a nice point to start at for a downtown walk. I just love the down town area with all the small vendours selling all sorts of junk and copy products.
Well ending up in the outskirts of downtown Cebu City it was time to flag down another taxi. This time to go to the Ayala Center. Bought some clothes and a few snacks before I went back to the hotel for a rest and coffee break.
Later that evening I met up with Joeven, had dinner at one of the Italian resturants in the Ayala, when he suggested that we go to the Tops. I asked him how to get there and he said that we probably should rent a car. Before I arrived he had talked a lot about renting a car with a driver if we where to go out of the city (beach, Moalboal etc.) and I had been acting a little like...."Must be other means of transportation" since that kind of service back in Scandinavia would cost two months salleries.
Anyway... 20 min later we sat in a brand new Nisan Sentra on our way to the tops - and it was UPHILL all the way.
But up on the tops was a very nice establishment...kind of a big balcony bar carved into the mountain, FRESH AIR (for the first time dureing my stay in this country I had fresh air) and a magnificent view over the city with all the lights on. Belive me I could have been here for hours.
The trip back was more or less like a rollarcoaster...just as steap as it was going up, naturally just as steap was it going down....this night is one that I will NEVER forget!
