It’s somewhere between a compliment and I’m trying to kiss you.
A night out at Balay Tubay in El Nido, Philippines.
I still wasn’t sure I really wanted to leave El Nido. All that day I was considering moving my flight to Bangkok back up, giving up on the Philippines, a country I was loving until the night before. But there were still things I wanted to do there. But I felt lost and all my friends had already left or were planning on leaving. So I felt that I’d just be lonely there anyways.
I really had no idea what to do.
And then we decided to go out, get drunk, drink away the sorrow, have one last kick off.
And so there were rhum-laced shakes and Red Horses and rhum and cokes. And we went to at Balay Tubay and we watched a band, and danced with Filipinos who kept taking their photos with us. And I met Juan, from Madrid, and Mani, from Iceland, (seriously, I freaked out because I had never met anyone from Iceland before). And we danced together all night. And we went to a club full of prostitutes. And we drank beers on the beach.
And I ended up staying four more nights…
