Having settled in to the lovely accommodation in a private home, it was time to meet a new friend on Mactan Island and then explore … the shops.  I had heard so much about the magnificent malls all over the Philippines, and it was luck time – a relatively new mall, the Ayala Mall in Cebu City was still being tenanted in its upper floors, but it was a real hive of activity and what a lovely setting.

And then a lunch in one of the many many restaurants on the balconies showing in the image to the right.

And then, to top it off a jeepney adventure and return to the in-home accommodation, knowing that the next day was going to be busy catching up with a long-time friend who is the hospitality manager at Marco Polo Hotel in Cebu City.
