This week we had the amazing opportunity to visit a Filipino village together with Sammy, one of Mark's co-workers. The entire trip was exciting! Over the course of the next few days we'll be blogging more about it. For today we'll just share some images of the road trip.
For the entire 3 1/2 hours of travel from Davao, there were endless interesting sights...
The vehicles we saw on the way defy imagination. I only wish I could have taken some better shots. Mark wasn't too thrilled with my suggestion to support great photos by driving at 15 mph.
The vegetation was gorgeous. Below is a field of coconut husks drying to be used as fuel. Not much goes to waste in this culture.
As we neared the village and began trying to read the fine details of the map, we found that it wasn't totally accurate. We took one minor detour, through a banana plantation and over this water-covered bridge. These photos don't do it justice... it was definitely worth the detour!
