Philippines: Come back to Bethany

On our way back to Mrs. Fruits home town we took a small detour to see the waterfall in the area which runs the major power for the islands cities. Some of the simplest things, water falling down over rock, makes the most beautiful sight.

We stayed for over an hour and despite the heat we climbed 5 flights up to the visitors deck (green awning) which gave us a much closer view.

Afterwards we went to the nearby market. OJ, our driver arranged for a dining area and was able to get us Lomi, a speciality at this market which is whole roasted pig. The market was really interesting and totally different than my local grocery store. Everything is caught, slaughtered, cooked and served all in the same day, it sure beats my store for freshness.

They even had their own version of to go rice containers which were easily opened with a certain tab and eaten right off the leaves. It was a big hit with our group.
