Spidey and the Trisikad

Bantayan Island...

The Trisikad driver and his trisikad...

It's been several days since the Bantayan Island trip with the Beeyatches, but still I couldn't quite fathom one thing about "Spidey"... Why in the world did he, the trisikad driver, leave it behind and jumped on top of the motorela (and I mean literally) and go with us to Poblacion Bantayan?

Okay, for those who don't know, a trisikad is a bicycle with a one-wheel sidecar. It's quite common in rural areas and it seemed pretty common in Bantayan Island, that's for sure. But if my definition is wrong, well, sorry! I'm not Webster!

Going back, I have been looking back to that time and my mind still keeps on wondering what went through Spidey's mind when he decided to join us and leave just everything behind, even his livelihood (the trisikad)... Back then, we were wondering if it was some kind of eccentric Bantayan culture towards tourists that the locals would go out of their way to be very hospitable. But then it was JUST TOO HOSPITABLE. Maybe it was just me... Maybe it was just us... I don't know...

Anyway, I won't even try to dig deeper into it anymore and I won't even dare. Too sleepy to do that. But one thing does bug me until now though... DID SPIDEY EVER GET HIS TRISIKAD BACK?
