It is rainy season in the Philippines so we were extremely lucky that it did not rain in the city and also in the town of Dalaguete, at least until it got late afternoon. But when you are at 1,000 meters above sea level, the climate is cold (about 20-25 degrees C vs 33 in the city) and muggy. Only one of us, Tet, is geared appropriately in hiking shoes. I only had a pair of tennis sneakers which gave me no traction at all when we scaled the peak. Fortune smiled and the sun cooperated although the mountain caps around us were too foggy to get some clear view of the Bohol Sea (East) and the Tañon Straigt of Negros (West). However, when we trekked down, the rain poured and the trail got muddy. I slipped twice which was no big deal. The testament of course was all over our shoes. And in my case, my pants! This photo of my and 's tired feet was taken at Mantalongon, when we boarded the mulitcab jeepney which took us back to the town center of Dalaguete, about 12 km and 40 minutes worth of rough dirt road. at the Mantalongon vegetable market, Dalaguete, Cebu, the Philippines more pics and journeys in colloidfarl.blogspot.com/

Dalaguete Mountain Range

Dalaguete Mountain Range
Made by Storm Crypt
The view looking to the west, from the western part of the municipality of Dalaguete's mountain range. In the distance(a little near the center of the frame), is the peninsula of the municipality of Moalboal, near the left center of the frame is Badian Island, a resort and tourist destination part of the municipality of Badian. This place is normally visited by tourists/campers/photographers for its spectacular view and unique rock formations. Contrary to most visitor's assumptions, this place is closer to the municipality of Badian's town center, than to the town center of the municipality of Dalaguete where this part of the mountain range belongs. Badian town center is approximately 7 kilometers to the west from this point, while the town center of Dalaguete is around 12 kilomters to the east. This view can be located approximately at 9°49'9.12N, 123°26'29.74E. This place is right near the border of the municipality of Badian and Dalaguete. Mantalongon, Dalaguete Cebu, Philippines

As do most churches in the Philippines, the monastically thick-walled stone church of San Guillermo de Aquitania in Dalaguete gets dark especially in the late afternoon sun. What is strange here is that I am directly facing the East and not the West where the sun is. Why then the backlight aura when the sun is at the back? Perhaps the church was just too dark that any portal simply will usher light in... That the light was vertical and appeared to stream directly from the antique chandelier made me think that images can sometimes indeed be reverent to such a holy place. (The heritage stone church was built in 1802 and finished in 1825. A major defense outpost during the pirate raids in the early 1800s, it is one of the remaining intact church fortress complexes in the Philippines. ) the Church of San Guillermo de Aquitania, Dalaguete, Cebu, the Philippines more pics and journeys in colloidfarl.blogspot.com/

I have no memories of my baptism. Catholics by tradition are baptized as infants so the sacrament that we can recall is confirmation, that is when we affirm our faith when we were about 7 to 8 years old. The baptism is the reenactment of the rite that St John the Baptist performed on Christ and is a symbolic act of repentance from original sin. The BAPTISTRY in the old fortress is original to the early 19th century structure. This appears to have been abandoned though or at least in a state of being restored. Or so I hope. the Church of San Guillermo de Aquitania, Dalaguete, Cebu, the Philippines more pics and journeys in colloidfarl.blogspot.com/

Age and history are written all over the ceiling of the church of Dalaguete. The view straight up rewards us a poetry of symmetry. For me, this is a sight that can transfix. From Maundy Thursday tomorrow to Black Saturday, I will be off somewhere in the island of Bantayan. I will be seeing you all in Easter. May the season of Lent bring meaning to those who seek. the Church of San Guillermo de Aquitania, Dalaguete, Cebu, the Philippines more pics and journeys in colloidfarl.blogspot.com/

Banhigan

Banhigan

There is a place in Dalaguete town called Banhigan. It literally means mat-weaving. In a spot by the road, there is a natural spring that pours into a man-made pool that faces the beach laden with colorful fishing boats and mangrove. Not only is it free but the people are warm and welcoming. Take this boy for instance, he refused to pose but he really played peekaboo with me.

Cebu may not be just limited to water sports. Mountain climbing can be an adventure. For us lowland people who are used to temperatures of 27-30 C , climbing the cold and fog-draped slopes of Mantalongon is a thermal treat. Known as Cebu’s , it is home to the entire island's highest elevation of 2,300 feet. This is what you see up above. at the Osmeña Peak, Mantalongon, Dalaguete, Cebu, the Philippines more pics and journeys in colloidfarl.blogspot.com/

All Saint's Day as well as All Soul's Day is probably the second most popular religious event in the country after Christmas. The nation is literally in flux as people go back to their home provinces and/or visit their dead in the cemeteries through prayers, offerings of flowers and candles festively expressed with food, entertainment, songs, card games and just reuniting with family and friends.

Consolacion at Dalaguete

Consolacion at Dalaguete
Made by Farl
The town of Dalaguete probably has a special affinity of the Virgin of Consolacion as the church has at least two large antique images at the altar and some other statues around the town. The oldest is this 3-foot image which fits quite well with the 18th century stone church. Dalaguete, Cebu, the Philippines 14th of the series more pics and journeys in colloidfarl.blogspot.com/

A somewhat chilling scene as I approached the almost ruined, Spanish era cemetery chapel that was converted into a graveyard. Bones were strewn about and old graveplots opened and desecrated. The flowers in the tin can was offered by the living relative to honor the dead. This is usually done during All Souls' Day. Dalaguete, Cebu www.estanli.net

As I was nearing the rendezvous point with my fellow trekkers, I had to go through a short valley in view of a nearby peak, partially covered with fog. Strange as it is, this goat came into view out of this mini valley, as if to say Welcome to my humble abode. Tabon/Mantalongon border, Dalaguete Cebu, Philippines
