Last night, our side mirrors were stolen from our Revo, wrenched away while we were inside the house of a friend. I feel violated, looking to my sides, and not seeing reflections, but instead, the insides of the mirror holders. The poverty of this nation driving people to steal from other people... it's heartbreaking.
Meanwhile, Cathy and I have made a firm conviction not to buy from the Banawe street hawkers. Doing this only encourages their filthy ways, and I can't stomach the possibility of spending P1500 to buy back my own mirrors! So even if it causes us three times more, we're buying from the legitimate folks. May this example spread.
