off to Davao in a bus

Itâ€™s 1:20 in the morning and so far I am the only one in the non-aircon bus bound to Davao by 2 AM.
alone in Bachelor Express
I am not really looking forward to the 7-hour travel from Butuan-Davao. But I am not whining either. Iâ€™ve gotten used to the long hours of travel. Going home twice a month made sure of that.
for people with special needs
I could have gotten the last aircon trip last night (9 pm) but that would mean arriving in Davao by 3 am - " still too early to be disturbing the guard of the resort where Iâ€™ll be staying for a week. And the next aircon trip would be at 4:30 am and if Iâ€™ll take that, Iâ€™ll surely be late for my meeting.
So, here I am, waiting for the 2 am trip. So silent here except for the FM station playing â€˜when I need love.â€™ Funny ï¿½ï¿½" I thought. Am I in need of love right now? Hmm.. Iâ€™ve been used to living (and loving) my life alone ï¿½ï¿½" too engrossed with my work with children.
Oh, at last, here comes another passenger. Ughh ï¿½ï¿½" a drunk one? Ah, must be my lucky day. â€˜donâ€™t sit beside me, donâ€™t sit beside meâ€™ ..thankfully, the guy took the last seat. It would have been a torture on my part to endure a drunkâ€™s breath for a couple of hours J
The terminal looks like sleeping quarters in the wee hours of the morning ï¿½ï¿½" with people in different sleeping positions, each with their own unique sounds J
Terminal or sleeping quarters?
I saw kids still awake and making faces at us ï¿½ï¿½" or at me? Haha ï¿½ï¿½" such cute kids. They were counting the buses too while guarding their mom whoâ€™s fast asleep. Kids guarding their parents? (the world is really changing)
At last, weâ€™re finally moving. Butuan- Davao in non-air costs P372.00
Iâ€™m leaving my hometown again ï¿½ï¿½" be missing my mom, my dad and my â€˜makukulitâ€™ brothers. Just arrived yesterday from Manila, stayed for a day in Butuan and now, Iâ€™m moving again. Good thing, I was still able to visit my bestfriend and was able to roam around the city in our motorbike with my parents ï¿½ï¿½" bonding time in Butuan Balangai museum. Iâ€™ll be back by May in time for the city fiesta.
Iâ€™ll doze off for now.. sleepy already.
