Sights and Sounds of Panau

So i've been here for a couple of days now and I'm trying to take in as much as possible. Number one, the climate here is out-of-this-world. I live by the beach (oh yes, pity me! lol) and the weather is as hot as the food (see last post). However, yesterday, I took a 15-minute chopper ride and was dropped off on a snow-covered mountain top! Unbelievable! Can you believe you can ski here? Thankfully the Panauan Dollar is so weak; it's been easy for me to do all kinds of excursions, even on a meager travel magazine's budget.

However, there are some odd limitations. Taxis, choppers, and even private jets are eager to lend you their services, but they won't take you just anywhere. There actually seems to be some unofficial "restricted" areas. It's odd, but I guess you have to respect local laws and customs, right (hint, hint)? I'll "explore" some more...

Oh, I just have to say this: I officially strongly "dislike" that guy, Pandak Panay. Never mind his politics, but his 24-hour propaganda message busses are annoying! Sometimes I wish I could just blow them to pieces, but I'm a pacifist, so there will be none of that.
