Some pics from my recent adventures clambering around through rice paddies, balancing on wobbly logs over streams filled with water buffalo, and driving along what can only loosely be called roads to reach some hard-to-access remote villages in upland Leyte-Leyte Municipality.
End of the road for the car… we’ll have to carry on on foot…

Chatting to the communities in the remains of the village day care centre
Used to be a house here:
Over several wobbly logs!
The good people of Bagabao lent us two small guides to make sure we didn’t get lost on the short cut back to the main road on our way to Mataloto!
Village spotted in the distance!
Dude hanging out with his pigs…

Proportional piling with garlic this time:
Cooking up a storm!
Lovely village gardens
Decorative eggshells, apparently!
Rice drying in the sun
Me being a poser
This lovely woman insisted we have some fresh coconut water, so she sent her son up a tree to get some for us!

Felt a bit precarious chatting to people in this house!
