Nice color combination. I would like to see more of the tops of the trees and a bit less water in the foreground.

Berto, Where was this vacation? Looks interesting. Not a lot of commercial stuff in the pic...not a car, parking lot, supermarket...looks like you were out in the boonies! Best regards,

this was taken during a visit to my grandma's house. we had to take a riverboat to get there. lots of people living by the water, a very simple life.
the town nearby is sooo quiet. hardly anything happens during the day. kids walk to school. people tending their farm...

here's a picture of a boat going opposite direction. same model(they're all the same) as the one i'm on when i took this picture.

had to take it in low res. to maximize disk space. i was a bonehead and didn't buy more memory before i went to the small towns.

this was taken during a visit to my grandma's house. we had to take a riverboat to get there. the town is called Palapag in the philippines. the life pretty much has stayed the same for over 30-40 years with little modern amenities.

Whats the situation with the rebels in the phillipines? I read from time to time in the news that they cause quite a lot of trouble there. Is it a reasonably safe place for tourists? Best regards,

the rebels you read about in the news reside on the southernmost tip of the philippines. so tourists are probably not welcome there nor would they want to go there.

otherwise, the rest of the philippines is great to visit. if you like the traditional views of "asian" countrysides, you will see a lot of it. very nice too.

manila is the capital and its sprawling with people and the traffic jams are soo bad and the drivers, ohgeez!! just get in the taxi, tell the dude your destination and close your eyes, hehe. but overall a very modern city...
still, its a 3rd world country so ideas that might go with that thought holds true.
