Sharing Gin with Russians

Then it was time to go to Bontoc since i realized that i had very little time before the meetup in Manila. I headed to the"Slaughterhouse" terminal as its called in Lonely Planet ,but the locals dont know it by this name, but if you say that you are going with "D`Rising Sun" to Bontoc they would gladly guide you. To get here from Harrison Road take any Jeepney with the name "Trancoville" and tell the driver that you want to get off at the Bus Terminal to Bontoc.

The Busride to Bontoc is very spectacular and i can recomend getting on the side of the bus which has TWO seats (Right) since it offers ALOT better views for the first part of the journey. The busride is quite uncomfortable and it stopps for a 15min break on the way

After getting off the bus i met two russian girls and looked for accomodation. I checked in to a P150 Pension and the girls checked into a P800 room (which i bargained for quite a long time) and we went out to buy a bottle of Gin and some sprite. They have a Curfew in Bontoc , but when we explained that we where going to drink inside the hotel we finally managed to get the goods. Natasha went to sleep quite early, but me and Nastya was up until 4AM and just had a great time talking about politics , economics , leadership theories and cultural differences.. Some topics if you consider that we met just a few hours earlier and was sharing a bottle of Gin.
