I met several of the sailors at the Why Not, they were having lunch. The ship was seeking safe harbor from the approaching typhoons. One told me a pedi cab driver charged him 300 pesos from the port entrance to why not Their beer of choice was Cervasa Negra. When a ship is at a port the government officials are asked if there are any civic projects some of the sailors can assist. Some choose to go shopping, drinking, touring, while others help with civic projects. I have work at several US Embassies and supported ship visits. The ship port called to Dumaguete was not assisiting any oil exploration.
