So we were off & on the way to the Tarsier Foundation. I'd read about this place. It's a small place with a few acres where Tarsier are free to roam & breed without danger. The foundation raises money and awareness of the endangered species. I walked thru the grounds with one of the staff & got a great look at these amazing little primates. They're smaller than you palm & absolutely adorable
Next it was time to check out the Chocolate Hills around Carmen. It was a nice drive through the countryside to the centre of the island & although the hills were not quite dry enough to be completely brown making them look like their name suggests, they were still pretty cool. I went to a lookout for a view out across the hills and took some photos
Then I headed back into town to check out the local shops & have a little relax...it was massage time! It was a great 2hr full body massage behind a curtain in the back of a little hairdressers but it really did the trick.
