A casual mention of it is enough to send eyes looking at you and women hiding a giggle. Or even a condescending stare trying to look at you from head to toe (and stopping at the crotch) and thinking if you’re having inadequacies under the sheets.

Kawasan Falls in Matutinao, Badian, Cebu, despite being one of the top natural attractions of the island province and me being a Cebuano, I haven’t really gone up to see this cascade in all of my 30+ years. Not until last week when I went down south and made a short detour.

A trip down southeastern Cebu is a trip into a history of blood, predation and the Cebuano’s attempt to defend themselves at the onslaught of Muslim slave raiders during the middle of the 17th to the middle of the 19th centuries. However these fortifications are in danger of being lost forever.
