    Naoshima Island
    Naoshima is located in the middle of Setonai-kai inland sea near Takamatsu.

    Top of the Tower
    During the Olympics, me and some of my friends had a time to hang-out over their place. Well not really tall and high, only 15 floors high, but it is really a great scene and view to experience sitting there and watching the sunset, the big river, the whole city and even some islands.

    Marajò, land of buffalos and bicycles
    When I decided to come back to Brazil, I studied the geographic map and I was fascinating to discover this big island at the mouth of the Amazon and Tocantins rivers. It’s roughly the sides of the Netherlands and Switzerland, but no more than a dozen villages are scattered in Marajò.

  • Little Memories From Bredco

    Little Memories From Bredco
    I don't know why it's called Bredco (sounds like "my bread" in our dialect), I don't even know either why some of them call it Reclamation Area --- either of the two, I don't bother asking. All I know is, from my every stay and visit in the Negros Occidental grounds, I always drop by Bredco.

  • Manaoag Church

    Manaoag Church
    The town of Manaoag Pangasinan was named after a legend of a man who was walking along a field and heard a sweet voice calling. When he trailed the voice, he saw an image of a woman with a rosary in one hand and a child in her arms standing on a branch of a tall tree. After the apparition, the tree was taken down and carved into the image of the Virgin Mary. Thus the name, "Manaoag" which is "man" meaning "to" prefixed to "taoag" meaning "to call" is given to the place where the apparition of Mary occurred. Some versions of the story say that it was lightning that struck the tree down but it left an imprint of Mary’s face on it.
