Fresh Fish For Sale

Last week we went to the beach for Leyte Landing Day (October 20th).  The Leyteños celebrate General MacArthur's liberation of the Philippines in World War 2.  We did what seemingly everyone else on the island did ... went to the beach.

While we were there, a long boat pulled up.  Boxes were brought off and people surrounded the men on-shore.  I walked over to take a look.  Boxes crammed with smaller fish and ice.

Our driver pointed out to me some equipment on the boat.  He said it probably meant that they were dynamite fishing.  Grrr.  Not cool!

People didn't seem to mind.  P120 for very, very fresh fish is a good price.  We didn't buy any.
