Anyway, early one gloomy Sunday morning, before going to my 3rd and last day on a thing called “work”, I opted to roam around the vicinity of my hotel. Lo and behold, I was just a few steps away from the public market. Yey! And of course, I went for it, as I know that like anywhere, the Calbayog market must be bustling with activity at this day and time. Just for a go see what might be there to catch my attention or curiosity. I can readily tell you, it was a lovely thing to do, with an even lovelier “ending story” that will be my last blog article in this series!
Alright, I walked around and encountered a platoon of tricycles, some of them called “center car”, some called something else and even something something else else hehe. But I think I already told you about them some time ago (in this article).
So I proceeded towards the inner portions. First encounter: the side streets of one market building where various market produce were on sale. Hey they are allowed to lay those eatables on the ground! Corn were laid bare on the pavement. Bananas (saba) were at least on a make-shift stall complete with that big colorful umbrella, and the lady there was firing (oh pumping I should say) her stove to start cooking banana-cue! Am sure you know what i mean with that thing where you pump the tank to get the fire burning.
So I moved on, it was just 05:52AM!
Let’s go somewhere else in this market. I was like enjoying this roam!
