A village amidst the terraces
I didn’t manage to go around the village that much since we only have a limited time. But I did manage to take a peek into their daily life. Let’s take a look.
An Ifugao kid
What I like about this village is that it isn’t commercialized or touristy. Unlike Batad, the kids here don’t ask you fo money or candies whenever you pass by. I hope it stays that way.
Playing Chinese Garter
At the age of technology, it’s refreshing to see kids play outdoor games like this. Kids nowadays spend too much time with computer games and consoles. In Manila I rarely see kids playing tags, Chinese garter, tumbang preso, langit lupa etc.
Harvesting rice is the main livelihood of these people. Also they have to make rice for themselves.
A constant human companion. A dog guarding the firewoods.
Peeking through the back
These people have beautiful almond eyes. And this kid was too shy to show it.
