Dumaguete is on the island of Negros, one of the central islands in the Philippines.
This is a descption of the city from a short story self wrote years ago. The story was published in White Whale Review 1.2:
The town itself was small and not at all like what he’d expected. He noticed there were no signal lights and everyone rode around on motorbikes or tricycles. These contraptions roamed all over the City and made a terrific belching noise. Smoke poured from their exhaust pipes, marring the fresh air that blew in from the ocean.
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
