    It puzzles me greatly why if you have a "Dumaguete friend" of TEN YEARS standing, you have to ask questions here about accommodation in Dumaguete!

    I came here knowing no-one and found out what I needed to know before I arrived by my own online research.

    Since then I found out the detail by using this Forum.

    Tripped himself up I think. Surprised this guy is still communicating. I think this may be one way to get his rocks off.

    I thought you might ask that. No, correction , I'm not that clairvoyant lol. That question occurred to me myself.
    It's just nice to have feedback from other expats , and I have spent many hours online investigating.
    It's also good to see the characters of different expats in the area, to get the general vibe of people who have been there awhile.
    I'll have no worries, my friend there will make sure I'm just fine.

    One day we will have AI robots writing our posts for us! Initially the software will not be that good and the postings will seem a bit bizarre, random and pointless.

    Are you the prototype?

    One point I usually make, to explain why I chose Dumaguete, is because it is not a sex tourism destination. Anyone seeking that will visit, but not stay long.
