There is always trouble outside and the guerillas harass the Japanese most of the time. Not only are the guerrillas active, but so are the bandits. They are becoming so numerous that many houses have been robbed in Jaro and La Paz. It seems that they come in with the guerrillas, so that one does not know who is who anymore. We are quite safe as our house is near the Japanese garrison, and both the guerrillas and bandits are afraid to venture too close as there are always Japanese patrols.
