Aircon Bus to Catbalogan

I made 1 more trip from Calbayog to Catbalogan and back. This time I took an airconditioned bus. The aircon bus was a much more comfortable way to travel than the ordinary fare busses, or even the vans. The seats are nicer, and even recline. The aircon was evenly distriputed, so we did not get hot, and there was no dust! The fee was less than the van, and only slightly more than the ordinary fare. Plus, we had music while waiting for the bus to pull out of Calbayog. But, even this mode of transportation has it’s problems. If you catch an aircon bus going from Calbayog to Catbalogan, it is comming from Manila, so it is still mostly full. That means sitting in the back of the bus, and bouncing around where the “National Highway” needs fixing. Plus, these buses travel faster, like the vans, so you feel the bumps more. And then, the bus did not want to stop in Catbalogan. I’m not sure why, but they drove through the terminal without stopping. We had to make repeated pleas with the driver to get him to stop, even though we had told the him, from the start, we were only going to Catbalogan. On the way back, we took the ordinary fare bus again. There really is no good way to travel in Samar! Here are some pictures:
