              I don't know if any of you have eaten Jackfruit, it has a strange odour but it tastes very nice...

                About 10 Kilometres up the road from Lomangog is the small port of Ubay and you get many of the inter-island ferries leaving/arriving there, here is one of them.

                  If any of you have ever visited some of the bigger ports in the Philippines you would have seen these small boats, were the people onboard shout to ask you to throw money/coins in to the water and they dive for it...These photos were taken in Tagbilaran the capital of Bohol, were were on the ferry going back to Manila....

                      This is the large ferry "St. Peter the Apostle" and she used to sail from Manila to Tagbilaran (via Cebu) the journey was 30 hours, she left Manila around 10.30pm Saturday and you arrived In Tagbilaran around 05.00am Monday morning. About a year or so after we were onboard the St Peter she caught fire and was a total right off....

                      The photo was taken by an onboard photographer, that is my wife (Marina) and daughter (Michelle) on the bridge....

                        So great seeing these images from Chocolate Hills of Bohol... it's been way too long since my last visit there. Wonder if I'll ever return to see them again(?)

                            When we visit the family they always prepare (fatten up) a pig to be roasted, to celebrate our visit.

                            This is after they have killed it, the pig is cleaned and then suffed with all kinds of herbs....

                              This is the pig ready to eat, it is a well known dish in the Philippines...."Lechon Baboy"
