In all seriousness this is the furthest south of the Philippines you can go and looks like the poorest. An experience, makes realize once again how lucky we are to have been born in North America.
The Airport was one small old terminal with no walk ups to board or disembark the plane, just get off the plane on the tarmac and that's it. (lol) I've seen this kind of setup before in the jungles of Iquitos Peru but didn't expect to see it here. Was kinda surprised but nothin really surprises me anymore. This is the direct opposite of Hong Kong, were i just came from. But you gotta love it!
Life is beautiful and ya gotta 'roll with it'.
Not too much I can say about this place but now that I've been in the North of the Philippines and the furthest south I am starting to get a 'handle' on the Filipino's. They remind me of Peruanos in many ways, loud, most of the population has very little education, inconsiderate of others and most have never traveled outside the Philippines. They still are a beautiful people but unfortunately because of poverty always 'have their hand out', women and men alike.
I'm going a little more north to Cebu next and work my way up to Manila to see if the middle of the Philippines is the same....stay tuned peeps...
