A great adventure but I was careless and foolish and had my right foot pierced by a stick. But it made the trip all the more memorable.
Maitum is not only anthropomorphic burial jars, bangsi, pawikans and rubber plantations. At its hinterlands remain one of Mindanao’s remaining stand of virgin forests that is in danger of falling under man’s greed. We embarked on an adventure to visit a poorly known and yet unnamed waterfall. This is a series.
One thing that really captured my attention during Bukidnon’s Kaamulan Festival were the native handicrafts that the tribespeople were wearing: Beads, bags and even brass belts and bells.
Bukidnon’s Kaamulan Festival is way beyond colors, steps and costumes. Its all about encountering and learning about these indigenous people that have contributed to what Bukidnon is today.
A whirlwind of bus trips, as much as 10-12 hours on the road, amazing sceneries and cities, great places and food that only Mindanao can offer. This, through my northern and western Mindanao sojourn.
