For this particular post, I’ll be excerpting some lines from a piece “Crossing Wild Quezon by Mini Van” written by photographer, writer and friend Oggie Ramos for InFlight’s July-August 2012 issue.
Back to basics in Alibihaban Island
We woke up before sunrise to cross over to Alibihaban Island, 15 minutes away, on a small motorized banca. We got glimpses of the simple life on the island mainly populated by families of fishermen.
School children come to school either by banca or walking through patches of mangroves as the men sail to shore with their catch. The school house has an enviable location, right under a canopy of trees with the beach as its backyard.
Maybe even buy fresh catch, slack off and enjoy the laidback pace.
Next post: Padre Burgos, Quezon Province
I’ll be posting my road trip photos from my recent dispatch in Quezon Province in chronological order soon. For now, enjoy a sunrise from Alibijaban Island.
