Just Fall In Line Behind The Chicken.

Hauling Out and Dusting Off An Old Favorite
I first published this post nearly 10 years ago. It’s always been a favorite of mine because it tells a lot about what it’s really like to live in the Philippines, day by day.
It has had its share of readership but it is now buried so far back in the archives hardly anyone is ever going to find it, so I decided to dust it off, polish it up and make a few edits to bring it up to the present.
How Did The Chicken Get In Here?
A while back I took my car to the dealer for its routine 40,000-kilometer service (that’s about 25,000 miles for the Metrically challenged out there).
Yep, four years now of living in the Philippines and car ownership in the Philippines and I have accumulated 25,000 miles already?
Already? Heck, I would have run up that many miles back in Colorado in only a year … one of the many reasons that living here is much cheaper than living in the US, even if you insist on the luxury of your own car.
It’s now 12 years living here and I have just over 100,000 km (60,000 miles.)
