Typewriters haven't been seen in these parts for a generation but I found plenty of unusual things on my trip to Philippines.
I realize too after taking a few shots that my favourite all rounder the Olympus SZ-16 that I use so much is not suited to astro photography, and I'll have to hatch another plan for taking sky shots.
Taking plenty of time to do well is also not a real option due to dusk inviting swarms of mosquitoes to drain my anaemic body even further.
All Philippines beers are superb and worth an adventure for those with sense enough to venture beyond Manila.
I see it as inferior to the old one and just another monument to our current waste generation who are very good at spending other people's money and never auditing the cost.
Somebody important must have contacted the council about it and thus had a gang come out and help a few of us, well done.
We'll drive out later to see if we can get some interest in other happenings.
The new one shown behind it only cost $3 but due to punitive laws here (that probably don't affect this case) that would likely astound people who live in free countries lets just say a plumber came to fit it.
