This kind of beach outing that my students and I have was planned around 1 week or so. That's how short noticed it is.

Anyways, 3 of my students were talking about banana ride and how cool it is and all of us should ride on it. They were talking about 32 USD for 30min ride on the banana ride (in reality its only for 15mins.) I did not say yes or even give them a no to banana ride.

However, almost everytime we discuss our beach outing, the banana ride is always mentioned. That really did struck me that they were so eager to have that banana ride.

Even when we ride on our vehicle, they were insisting to have that banana ride until we reached the beach resort. My students are really persistent, they will never stop unless I give in. Still I remained firm and did not say a yes or a no.

Did I agree to their request???

Oh you have shark phobia? You would surely enjoy the banana ride. The sea looks dark blue already and I know it's very deep:) I forgot about the sharks when we had the banana ride, I was just scared to fall.

I have a shark phobia in the sea. I couldn't go so far from the beach. Anyhow it looks funny.

Recommended Tacloban City Guide

Tacloban City History

The trading point between Samar and Leyte, Tacloban was discovered in 1770 by the Augustinian Mission. Later on, the Franciscans took hold of the place in 1813. This change in governance was also the same period where the name Tacloban came about.  Originally Tacloban was named Kankabatok from the first inhabitants of the area who were known as Kabatok. This group of people established a system and inhabited the place known at the present time as Sto. Niño Church. Among the other groups of settlers were Gumoda, Haraging and Huraw.
