The Indiana Jones Bridge

In The Philippines

You arrive in the Republic of the Philippines. If you came here on business, then, you attend your conferences and make your meetings.

If you came here on vacation, then, you have some ideas or an itinerary of activities that you want to see or do.

Once you have been to the beach and wiggled your toes in the ocean, it might be time to head back to the air-conditioned hotel room and take a nap before dinner.

Before you doze off, pick up the TV remote and, while you may not understand Brendan Fraser or Rachel Weisz speaking Tagalog in one of the “Mummy” movies, you can enjoy the adventure.

Think back to your childhood; did you ever want to dig around in Egyptian tombs or be an “Indiana Jones ?”

Then, grab your fedora. Pack your leather bomber jacket, epaulet shirts, rucksack and bullwhip. Dash to the airport and buy a plane ticket or catch a ferry to Leyte to head for Barangay Balud, Republic of the Philippines.

You will not have angry pygmies or excited natives chasing you, but you will find the hanging bridge across the river that looks like one out of an Indiana Jones movie.

“Holy, Indiana Jones !”

You step carefully on to the bridge above the river and realize this is not a Hollywood movie set. It is a real bridge that citizens cross daily going to and from work. Some people cross the bridge several times a day.

I did it twice. Once to get to Barangay Balud. And, once to get back to the other side and walk home to Barangay Baras.

Leyte Land

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.
