Green Acres In the Philippines

If you have ever dreamed of a farm in the country – here is a farm in the country of the Republic of the Philippines.  This rural homestead is in the jungle, on the island of Leyte, in the Barangay of Baras.

Welcome to Leyte Land.

Homes are all different depending on the families that live in them and the terrain that the house is constructed on. If you have ever been to rural areas of the Ozarks, at first glance, the rural homes of the Philippines might not seem that different, except, of course, instead of sycamore, walnut, white oak and black oak trees; there are the coconut trees.

The Ozarks has brush like briar bushes, poison oak and poison ivy vines, old grape vines dangling out of the trees to blend with the pasture grasses. In Leyte, in the Philippines, you have dense green grass that spreads into the rural jungle, which accommodates rice fields and coconut trees.

On this walk, I took my camera and strolled about a quarter of a mile into the jungle. Ecology architects should appreciate how well the homes seem to blend into nature.

On another walk, I took my camera and strolled up the road to photography homes beside the road up to the barangay boundary.

 The Sari-Sari Store, in the photo below, is a quick stop for everyday items used in households from snacks to toothpaste to soda and washing detergent.  This sari-sari store is near the Barangay Baras and Barangay Cameri boundary.

    • Beton,

      Thank you for the compliment. My strategy is simple. I am a newsman at heart. If something catches my eye, I grab the camera. An event happens that give me a story idea — I write it. If you know of any story or photo ideas in Leyte, shoot me an email and give me a heads up and I;ll try to check it out.

      Sam
