where did the road go?

There used to be a wide asphalted road in front of our gate. But a couple of months ago, on March 28 to be exact, the wide road was halved. One side was dug up and cemented while the other half of the road served traffic both ways.

Now the cement on the Other Side of the Road, after one month of 'curing', has been declared hard enough for all types of vehicles to pass through. Thus, that part of the road that was closed for the past two months has been opened and it is now the once open part that is closed.

Hehehe. Confused already? ;-)

Anyway, the bottom line of the whole story is: we can't park inside our gate anymore. We have to park across the street, in the big yard of the Bishop's Palace, where the bishop of Dumaguete lives. That will be starting tomorrow, June 2. Let's see exactly when the cement on This Side of the road will be hard enough to handle traffic...

You are so very welcome to come and read about our beloved Dumaguete, Vicki. Ma-inspired pud ko to write knowing that there is someone out there looking forward to hear news about Dumaguete.

Thank you for your kind words.
