Baclayon Church and Jeepney
Typical Philippines setting
One of the reasons I chose to travel to Bohol was to see the Tarsier - a crazy monkey-bat like creatyure with huge eyes and a rotating head. The animal is endangered and Unique to the philippines. Bohol is also famous for the chocolate hills - a crazy mound of hills made from Coral over thousands of years.
I suggested the trip to John - he agredd to split the taxi. Then Sharon from London came along, and we met another Girl called Anna, who also fancied the trip, so that was great! Cheap trip - split 4 ways!!! Result. Also went to the Loboc River on a cruise which was really funny - a slight tourist trap, but funny all the same - we were serenaded by laods of people in a south pacific stylee!
Started of at the boold compact site in Bohol = where about 500 years ago the local chieften signed an agreement in blood with the spanish conquistador!
Then went to Baclayon church - made from Coral. The crazy ting was - all the religious statues were all white skinned - all the saints and other inportant people were western looking
