As I waited for the bus at the bus stop closest to Bangaan village, I saw a bus coming. The road was so narrow that I was worried about how the bus would pass each other if another bus came from the other side. In the first place, the bus itself would probably fall down the cliff if the driver was not careful, let alone pass it.

The driver must be used to driving on such a narrow cliff road. The bus moved along at a brisk pace. The passengers sitting on the roof of the bus didn't seem to be particularly nervous. What struck me as odd was that the word "samurai" was written in big letters on the front of the bus. A bus running in the northern part of Luzon Island in the Philippines and a samurai. I tried to figure out what kind of connection there was, but I couldn't come up with an answer.
