Self loves the current WordPress Photo Challenge: HUMANITY. As it turned out, almost everything she’s posted on this theme so far are photos she took in the Philippines.
Siquijor is an island off Dumaguete, in the province of Negros Oriental.
Its allure has always been powerfully mysterious, at least to self. It’s rather a large island, with several well-populated towns. But it seems a world apart. The people of Siquijor may be poor, but they don’t appear desperate. The island is clean, and tourists don’t seem to be coming in droves, thank God.
She’s visited the island a couple of times, the last time in 2012. It’s a short ferry ride from Dumaguete.
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
