Yesterday morning Dorothy and I went to Iloilo. We were able to get a carabao cart for transportation, and when we were halfway to the city, the yoke got loose and the carabao walked away. The result is that we got a jolt! It is funny all the different kinds of conveyance that people are using – carabao carts, bull carts, horses, two-seater bicycles. The only people who have cars are the Japanese and Gov. Caram. Gov. Caram and Mayor Ybiernas are closely guarded by the Japanese for fear of being assassinated by the guerrillas.
