A nice little road trip to Valencia

Answering a question about the Valencia house for rent, meeting a new couple, admiring the roaring ocean and realizing they put a different name on my Rusco receipt (Whose James Brown?) :=)

  1. Oh really Bud, why am i not surprised, they do not exactly instil confidence in one, trying not to sound negative, but at times its hard to be positive in that country. You can pretend everything is great when the reality is the opposite in some respects. However when you reside there, you become accustomed to the way things are done there and just go with the flow. Anything that you have experienced there, i have been there before. You’re a good man Bud who trusts everyone, after living there for 8 years, i learned not to be too trusting following several rip offs in the first year or so. I quickly learned that i was regarded as a millionaire and could afford to pay more than the locals for items in the local market or for certain services. My wife didn’t even know this was the norm there until we moved there permanently in 2007, then she found out from being the wife of a foreigner. Having said all this, i did enjoy my life there
    especially the warm climate, (summer every day), and the people are so easy going and friendly. But Bud, the corruption and poverty
    creates a hidden dark side that preys on unsuspecting foreigners like you and me. Godbless you and Gloria. Bob and Lina Wilson NZ.

  2. Cool trip Bud. I have made a couple of very short trips to Dumaguete but never up to Valencia. Next time I will stay a bit longer and explore the area. It seems to be a favorite of many expats.
