smb posted a blog entry in Vic Rolfe's Art, Photography and Travel Blog - (formerly smb's Blog)Well... Like most people, I haven't had a lot of travel to write about over the last year. I finally got off a cable ship where I had been stranded for months, in Dubai on the 2nd of June 2020 - and I have been in sunny Somerset ever since. Added to that, I have had a severe bout of illness, (not Covid), for the last three months, whereby I have been virtually housebound - with or without travel restrictions. Anyway, it is still cold but the sun is shining. There are signs of spring all around - and I am finally well "on the mend" from the illness that I have been suffering from. Step by step... (Or pedal by predal!) The first thing that I am really looking forward to is being able to get out on my bike as the weather continues to improve. Then maybe, just maybe; we can start looling at some travel, photography - and maybe even some art!! Here are some photos that I took out and about on my bike last summer.
Amazonia, 470 M.H. del Pilar St., (on the corner of Santa Monica,) Ermita, Manila. (Tel: 02 450 0126 0r 02 450 0127) The waitresses are friendly and very efficient. Not every night is a band night, though, so call first and see who is playing. The place is open 24 hours and they do a great breakfast too. (They also serve great coffee. I prefer theirs to Starbucks any day!) Update - April 25, 2006: I was in there a few days ago and they tried to charge me PHP 110 for a bottle of San Miguel Pale Pilsen (smb.) I don't mind paying a premium for a decent beer in nice surroundings but, to my mind, PHP 110 is taking the piss... Still, each to their own. Amazonia has its share of freelance girls but they are less insistent there than, say, L.A. Cafe (just across the road.) So if you just want a quiet beer and you are not too worried about the price, Amazonia might fit the bill. Updated details - Venue closed-down Update - 28/04/2019: This place has been closed for years...
