---Krishnasurfi's thought for the day----> the soil in which the meditative mind can begin is the soil of everyday life, the strife, the pain, and the fleeting joy….it must begin there, and bring order, and from there move endlessly…..but if you are concerned only with making order, then that very order will bring about its own limitation, and the mind will be its prisoner…..in all this movement you must somehow begin from the other end, from the other shore, and not always be concerned with this shore or how to cross the river….you must take a plunge into the water, not knowing how to swim…..and the beauty of meditation is that you never know where you are, where you are going, what the end is……

 

Philippines/day 30

……

…….in today's "tales from the hollywood bowl"……it's 530am and I fell like its been a whole day…..I am sitting on a ferry awaiting departure from Siargao to Surigao……the tricycle I was in to the ferry port broke down….there was me, 4 locals and all my shit on that hubble hubble(the name for the trikes)……I walked over to a warung who was putting out coke bottles full of petrol…..I walked over and asked for a ride……our driver flagged down a motor-bike taxi and I zoomed past my former travel companions who decided to walk……a dollar and 8 minutes later I was in Dapa, at the port…….I've been awake almost all night, travel anxiety I guess…….let the games begin…… then it was a packed, dodgy, 3 hour, ferry trip from siargao to surigao……..some chickens, some puking…….it was all going on…….then off to the airport for a 5 hour wait, till my flight…….sat in a restaurant, ate, coffee…..then the baggage, over-weight, shuffle routine……$8 charge(I can't argue with that, all things considered)……I left one of my bags in the coffee shop while I checked in so they didn't see 2 carry-ons both over the 7 kilo limit……when I got back to the restaurant it started pouring…….I was screwed as my umbrella and rain coat were checked in…..I waited, then scurried once it let up……through security………then I realised I left my power-strip in the restaurant, the security guard let me leave my bags, then out I went, back to the resto, then through security(they informed me I could not carry it on, then to the counter, they retrieved my bag, I put it in, locked it)then back through security and wait for the 1 hour flight to cebu…….got there went to cebu pacific ticketing office, found out the flights to clark were fully booked, sunday, monday(no flight tuesday)so it was the 1130pm flight saturday night, which cuts my whale sharking adventure short, I'll have to do it on friday…….then over to philippine airline ticketing office to return the ticket out of the philippines I had to buy at the airport in sing or I couldn't board my flight(the ticket I had was bogus and they checked it)so the PAL ticketing agent said I couldn't return that one until I had a ticket out of the philippines to show him……..so I jumped in a cab and headed downtown cebu……I needed a lay down…….that was it for me, I slept for a bit then, off to the 7-11 for some supplies, new tooth brush and tooth paste as I forgot mine in siargao, some liquids, and back to my room and back in bed, with the news on………..
