第377話 いよいよ選挙

Photo  国内でも政治の世界はすっかり選挙一色だ。こちらでは選挙でヒートアップしているのはせいぜい支援者くらいのもので、大多数は無党派、その時々の空気で投票する。これがフィリピンともなると全く様相を異にする。以前、知り合いのA氏が南レイテの小さな町の町長選に立候補したとき応援(見物かな?)がてら現地に2日ほど滞在した。

 南レイテはロケーションとしては結構不便なところにある。セブからだとヒロンゴスまでの船便もあるが、今回は彼の弟のところで車を借りる、ということで、かなり遠回りになるが、まずはオルモックへ向かった。彼の弟のコネで安く乗船できるという理由で、第4桟橋から出るweasam shipping のボートを利用。確かに600ペソ→480ペソとなった。彼の弟はデジタルプリントの印刷会社を持っていて、この船会社の垂れ幕の印刷などで関係があったようである。

 さすがにスーパーキャットに比べて船はくたびれているし、待合室で見た乗客の顔ぶれもちょっと違う感じ。人間の中味はどう隠しても外見に出てしまうものだ。待合室では盲目のマッサージ師が歌いながら手を動かしていて、自分もお願いしようかと思ったが、あまり時間もなかったので、また今度、ということにして乗り込む。予想通り1等の船内(1等とは言っても…)はやたら寒く、30分ほどで退散。結局、室外に椅子を並べただけの2等の長椅子で寝転がることにした。ちょっと生暖かい風がフィリピンらしくて却って寛げるというものだ。

 2時間半ほどでオルモックに着岸。この町に来たのは12年ぶりだが、当時よりも随分と賑やかな町になっていて、ちょっと意外な感じだ。

My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on a number of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking about making my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? With thanks

Hiya! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share. Thanks!
