... been squashed. As soon as she fell asleep I reclined my seat that little bit further !

For entertainment they play karaoke tracks the whole journey! Mainly country and western ofcourse, then they had a few medleys all sang by unknown artists. I was surprised when a Depeche Mode song was song (badly) but I happily sang along…quietly! Martin managed to sleep a lot of the way and was snoring along in tune with the music!

At 5.45 am the bus stopped and there ...

... at his attempts to spit the 'moma' (red juice). After a brief detour to the less than impressive viewpoint we went back past Kiangan to the nearby lake. Enroute we broke down twice, and had some villagers help get us going again. Tom swam in the large lake with some local kids and bamboo stick before we got Von to drive us back past the very scenic rice terraces whilst the sun was setting. We also had a ...

... felt like we were back in the 14th century or something. The tribal people showed us a skeleton of their great great grandfather, that died in 1945 in the war. They keep it wrapped in a blanket in the closet. There were cockroaches inside the scull, we found it somewhat creepy to see.. but very interesting. We had to pay them some money because everytime they open the blanket with their grandpa inside they have to kill 2 chickens (at least thats what they tell ...

... wants to hike, we hike). After leaving our jeepney driver safely wrapped in his hammock, it was a relatively uneventful hike except for dodging just about everyone else who decided to drive the dirt path up to Saddle Point before a 40 minute downhill saunter. As you climb down to the tiny village of Batad, it really stretches the imagination to think that the inhabitants continue to live and work in this picturesque setting in much the same manner as they have for thousands of ...

Batad and Tappia Falls

... hikes I’ve ever had to do. I think it was made ten times worse because I was so sore from the caving just two days ago. I really felt it on the last set of stairs going up the mountain. I can still feel the burn now just thinking about it. I have never been so happy to see a jeepney though!

We got in the jeepney and starting heading back to Banaue. The first part of the road coming down from the Saddle to Batad Junction ...

    Stayed here two nights. Would not recommend for backpackers as there are a couple other places in town that are cheaper and nicer. This is more of a resort with a couple of backpacker rooms, but the prices for food, tour and drinks are out of my budget. Comes with a free breakfast though. Nice.
