The Philippines: Calbayog, Samar Island

Text coming soon

Kids diving for coins when we arrived in the port of Allen, Samar, Philippines

Oceanside cemetery in Allen, Samar

The cathedral in Calbayog, Samar

Another view from Eduardo's Hotel rooftop


Posing for pictures

Sunset at the harbor in Calbayog, Samar

Here's an idea we haven't thought of in the US: curfews for kids

Par for the course

Adorable house in Calbayog

Basketball courts are everywhere in the Philippines, some even homemade like this one.

A resort I wandered into

Pool was inviting but I didn't have my suit on.

School kids

Riverfront homes

The roosters are always tied up. Fighting cocks, I assume

A small community near the municipal airport

These boys showed me where to climb over the concrete wall

Someone signaled me over to take a photo of these guys. Only one of them was displeased.

Great use for used tires.

I miss riding my bike

More beautiful Filipina girls

Lots of new construction everywhere

Porters at the port in official t-shirts

I went swimming here while waiting for the boat to take off. I also scattered some of Maya's ashes

I paid for the cheapest bunches, but ended up in this private suite with some new Belgian friends

I never did find my assigned bunk.
