3.en.67 Finally, some news from the Philippines

Daryl and Philline are surely having a great time and have not sent us any news. Finally, better late than never, Philline sent us a virtual postcard from Borocay. I copy it and paste it here.

Check in Google map the location of Borocay.

Hello 🙂
Sorry that I couldnt write the diary the last weeks, I was too busy. This is the diary of the last week.

Thursday – Saturday
– I went to Boracay, a very tourist island because of the beaches. Most of them are from China, Japan and Korea. Before that, our flight was delayed two hours because the air traffic.

Sunday.
– My whole family went to Subic is a ex American military base that now is also a touristic place with its zoo, tree adventure and beach. it took two hours by car by the highway with a lot of toll gates.

  • Do you know what “toll” is?
  • What do you think of the landscape?

Philline must tell us everything about her trip wehn she comes back. I guess that, after watching the pic she sent, we can understand why she has not sent any entries to the blog.

Have a good time, Philline , and relax because on coming back you’ll have some work to  catch up on!

Regards from your hardworking 2nd ESO E classmates and teachers.

Daryl.… No news from him. Where is he? Has he forgotten us?

No news from some old classmates who are far away. What about Lucas? He might visit our blog from time to time. Let’s see if he sends a joke or  a virtual postcard.

    dear All,

    this is Dani from my girlfriend’s account. i just want to say a big THANK YOU for all the support and good comments written in this blog. it is nice to see that a “no one” can get so much good feedback.
