Some pictures (More to come soon)
Finally, I have some pictures of the wonderful places I traveled through in the Philippines. All of the pictures come from the Philippines' Mountain Province.
The misty green valley with rolling clouds is near Sagada. Rice is grown once a year in this high valley.
The terraces & town with the large mountain behind it are from Batad.
A number of famous and spectacular rice terraces in the region North of Manila together constitute a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The terraces in Banue (pictures coming soon) often get referred to as the 8th Wonder of the World. What amazes me most is that this "Wonder" almost doesn't exist in the Western conciousness. Few people know anything about this spectacular feat of engineering.
