We made the trip again via tricycle and had to drop my wife off and then take me to the bank and go back for her, but I got out of the trike a few blocks early so I could have my brother in-law go back and get my wife and bring her to the bank, she had the dang check book and he couldn't understand a lick of English and I've known him for decades, he couldn't understand most of the words coming out of my mouth so the traffic enforcer got out his ticket book and was giving him a ticket and I took off walked to the bank, I sat down outside in the heat because of the social distancing and my wife showed up the police brought her anyway because it took us too long to return so good job on the PNP and they also cleared up the ticket.

I guess your beyond blessed if you have a car if not your pretty much screwed would be my take on travel because there's no public transportation.

Came out of the bank about an hour later and was relieved to get my banking done and get some money that's another topic and only to find out the older brother in-law had just died and the family needed clothe's for his funeral.

The wife went out to the big city for the first time yesterday, still needed a travel pass but all went ok apart from all the stuff she bought. That's me busy for the next couple of weeks. At least when I'm allowed to go with her I'll be able to curve her enthusiasm.

We had to use the authorized barangay members with the pass around their neck they never get stopped other than in the next city and then our nearest city has days they are open to outside municipalities to get around and only one rider per trike.

Wow a taxi would be something we never so those in our area unless somebody gets dropped off from the airport and it's a 5000 pesos ride.

Permanent pass issued today for local shopping, no requisites to spend hours at the local municipal hall for a pass to the next Barangay or anywhere else in the province, alcohol and cigarette ban lifted 2 days ago, limited public transport. No Taxis. No Buses, fortunately we have independent wheels.
I'm staying at home even though our province is Covid free, observations show the numbers don't add up for the Philippines, the next month or so will tell the tale.

Cheers, Steve.
