We went to visit my father’s grave and took the opportunity to do our walking exercise in the huge park. Public parks are few (if non-existent) and far between in the metropolis so if you feel like wanting to do brisk walking in a traffic-free greenbelt zone, the best place to go to is the memorial park.
What a fascinating tree! We were told by the park attendants that this tree was planted by the Americans when they used to operate the park.
The flowers are fragrant and those round things resemble a coconut

This pilgrim was too exhausted to complete the stations of the cross at the Walkway steps
The island is rich in mineral waters flowing from the mountains. This is a washing area in Benoni.

Now you see him, soon you don’t!
This fishing village is next to one of the biggest resorts in Camiguin. Coastal lands are selling up like hotcakes!

The office of the Licensed Embalmer of Camiguin is closed for the day
The (licensed) funeral car is a classic collection
Shampoo in sachets is big business not only in Camiguin but in the whole Philippines
A visit to the Giant Clam Sanctuary is a must! You have to snorkel to marvel at the one-meter wide clams in their natural habitat.
Even if ricefields dot the landscape, Camiguin still depends on the mainland for its regular supply of rice to feed its 82,000+ inhabitants.
The vendors of Camiguin
Selling fish from a bucket
These two women walk kilometers each morning to sell the small variety of fish (anchovies). I asked them why don’t they sell the bigger variety and they replied, “it’s easier to carry the small fish than the larger ones!”
This young boy carries this bucket of seaweeds and sells them from house to house
He sells the most delicious ice cream, even better than the Italian’s gelato – at 5pesos a cone!

This is the MOTORELA that can sit ten people at a time. Very uncomfortable but cheap, you sit in a sloping position that a stilt to balance your butt would be nice.
Another form of transport. It can sit an entire family.
A very reliable form of transport, this can sit an entire community and is not afraid to smash all vehicles blocking its way!

A Sunday afternoon scene in the island – when all forms of transport are seen parked in one place. Cockfighting is on.
