i’m back! (part2)

March 22, 2009

I’M back-2 (continuation of my journey – from part 1).

From Manila & Cebu, next destination – the island of Leyte.

From the port of Cebu, we embarked for Leyte at around 9 pm and arrived on the port of Maasin, Southern Leyte at 4 in the morning. And at our house, I want to sleep but I couldn’t so I get a cup of hot coffee and walk outside waiting for the sunrise πŸ™‚

Yay! 1st day glimpse of sunrise…

Did I mention that sunset is also visible at the back of our house… πŸ˜‰

On the 2nd day. Friday – 6 in the morning, we took a hike for about 2-3 hours, (it’s like walking on 3 to 5 mountains, I forgot to count) to the place called Hanginan.

The view seen along the road to Hanginan.

    My grandfather was in Mindanao years ago. He knew some pearl divers.

      It’s good to hear that your father visited Mindanao, maybe in Davao (there’s a pearl farm there in Samal Island – Davao).
      How about you, are you also planning to visit Mindanao? πŸ™‚
