Visit to the Philippines
Back in August Torrey and I spent two weeks in the Philippines visiting the LRF where we hope to be moving to sometime in the next year or so. I won't say much or I will never get this thing finished and posted. So without further ado, here are some pictures from our trip.
We flew into Butuan where we stayed a few days at this lovely hotel called Dottie's Place.
Alethia liked the pool
And the mini jeepneys were fun too.
It looks like it may be just about time to get her a butterfly net.
We traveled by bus to Iligan.
At the LRF Alethia made friends quickly.
The LRF's jeepney needed some work done on it, so these guys dove right in.
I was actually pretty impressed when I saw the thing running the following week.
I tried to get Alethia to wear a parrot nose, but she never did go for it.
Scott did though.
Alethia's favorite pastime was kissing the dogs.
Scott wouldn't try that one.
Here is the hill behind the LRF.
And here we are taking a walk up the hill.
I tried Rambutan for the first time.
Tasty lechon manok.
At the LRF they use coconut shells to make charcoal that they use to cook rice with. This was fascinating to me.
The streets of Iligan
Near the village of Tagoloan
And one last sunset from the LRF.
My next post should be a bunch of 3D pictures from the Philippines, so stay tuned for that.
