Our-ride-600x600It was a usual Friday morning, my 17th day camping in Malapascua, April 3rd. I was lying on the hammock beside the concrete fresh water well under the shade of a Talisay tree within Dennis’ compound, reading the 99th chapter of Jackie Collin’s Power Trip.

Dennis-maneuvering-the-boat-using-a-bamboo-pole-600x600Dennis, a local canvasser, was not his usual happy-go-lucky self. He was fidgeting, in a way uneasy, so i asked him what bothered him. He told me that his contact person for the Kalanggaman trip has not yet responded to his last text. The last time they communicated was yesterday morning. It was already 9am. He asked for their estimated time of arrival in Maya port so that he could hire a pumpboat to fetch them ahead of time. No reply. The guests were probably unaware of the task’s complicated nature.
