Sabang Philippines

This is a bus or Jeepney unloading at the boat docking area in the center of the Fishing Village of Sabang. The whole place has no more than 100 huts in the immediate area; however outside the village are some rice farmers. In the small village of Sabang there is really only about 20-30 huts. The place is very small and more of a group of houses and not a village. A village normally has a central store that serves the city, a bigger store that would sell or collect items that are needed. A trading post more or less, the stores here are small and not very well equipped. I believe for major shopping the locals go into Puerto Princesa to buy things, one German woman said this to us, however this is a bad stretch of road and we are all not so happy with the road; however, I believe the locals do this trip as a normal part of life. The trip is not bad, it is just most Asia travelers are pampered.

The talkative woman on the Jeepney owned a fruit stand, or a few fruits stand. The lemons or something like a lemon is only the size of a nut. A girl in the Hotel was using them to do shots of Tequila and they are about the size of a U.S.A. Quarter Coin.
