Our visit to Zamboanga is two-fold, to visit hubby's siblings who lives there and for hubby to attend a reunion at his school Zamboanga School of Fisheries, which is a maritime school. He spent his days and night with his batchmates while we stayed at his sister's house. I mainly spent the day tutoring AJ on her exams. We brought all her books with us but i can honestly say we only covered math and reading. Bad idea to bring books on vacation, it's never gonna work. Note to self, re-schedule vacation after kid's exam.
Anyway, later we lighted candles at Fort Pilar and enjoyed the breeze for a while at Paseo del Mar. There was a brief brown out in most parts of the city but thankfully, a relative of theirs invited us for dinner at Village Restaurant. The food was okay but the place is a good bonding place for families because of the playground. The kids enjoyed their stay thoroughly.
I would have wanted to visit the barter trades again but we did not have the time since we had a schedule to follow.
Downtown zamboanga has narrow streets and traffic is already horrendous. Lots of tricylce. I think the streets are even narrower than Iligan.
