Osmeña Peak-Kawasan Traverse

This is my photoblog for the Osmena Peak-Kawasan Traverse. It was really long for me, seven hours is. I'd like to choke whoever made that "small world" phrase. These are my descriptions for the photos above. Spare me the need to be meticulous with the html codes. Just match the description with the order of photos.

A tourist takes a walk at a garden of cabbages.
Jonas looking for a store to buy his nth pack of Marlboro.
A view from the foot of Osmena Peak.
A man carrying bottles on his bukag, a basket made of rattan. The basket is usually used to carry vegetables. 100 kilograms is a "typical" weightload, which is carried by the neck.
A fern-planked footpath that leads to Kawasan Falls, which was six hours away. When you ask locals for directions, they'd talk like it's just around the corner.
A boy carries water container. Locals do not start carrying 100-kilogram baskets right away. They start young, with 30-50 kilograms for their first trip.
A hiker fills up his water bottle from the reservoir. Notice the arm muscles, typing on a keyboard did that.
Jonas phone home.
Another photo of Jonas. He is everywhere.
John Lennon T-Shirt by Chyrel Gomez.
Anne Curtis jeering at my backpack.
Locals enjoying a Jet-li movie.
There are very lush parts of the trip and you'd feel like you are lost. Well, you should have stayed at home.
The walk goes on and on and on.
We were nearing Kawasan Falls at this part. My biggest frustration was that I was not able to find Kanlaob River. But it was really fun, especially if getting back pains and chafed skin is your thing.
