The residential area surrounds the ring of rock like bits of pieces. On the open area in the port, a skinny man welcomed me with his red motorcab.

    We drove in a few minutes to his house where he introduced me to his pretty (and younge ...

  • Summer Memories In Onuk Balabac Palawan

    Hola people! I'm alive, still traveling, yet stopped blogging.
