It's always wonderful to get back home after seeing nothing but sky scrappers, except for the verdant garden at the friend's house I was staying at. But for that little oasis, I might have gone nuts.
It was nice to go for a walk down the road I live in and see not one concrete structure, but the road. Here is what I like to see, not much of anything but green and verdant valleys. It help me remember why I love Palawan. I have been so upset over the approval of a coal fired electric plant and the Ocean Park in a marine sanctuary, I almost forgot why I live here.
|Mangingisda Road. This is walking back towards my house from the Mangingisda Pier.|
|A very common sight. Carabao carts! Too bad the 3 year old cement road is already falling apart due to no steel rods!!|
|It's very common so see children ridding the carabao aka water buffalo.|
|Palawan cherry blossom. Not really a cherry at all.|
|Hidden in the forest 243 species of flora and fauna found only in Palawan.|
|Lantana, so bright and colorful. Butterflies love them!|
|Mahogany tree seed pods.|
|Milk weed flowers.|
|Star like flower on a tree.|
