Trip to Guiuan, Samar, 1 – Supercat


I was in Guiuan, Samar almost a month ago as part of the church book project that has been assigned to me. Anyway, to start…

The fast and affordable trip from Cebu to Ormoc (and eventually buses to Tacloban and then to Guiuan) via sea is still the reliable Supercat. The last time I rode this was more than five years ago when I was still based in Cebu. Now, it seems nothing has changed except that the fare has escalated to leaps and bounds :-)

Left, inside the craft, the passengers are just sitting out the 2.5 hour trip, watching the movie video or, right, having breakfast.
