back from agusan


I just spent a week in Agusan del Sur... 2 days on a floating schoolhouse in Lake Mihaba in the Agusan Marsh, a rainy night on the slopes of Mt. Magdiwata, an afternoon on a floating view deck on Lake Binoni, and a short birding sortie at the Binaba Falls on the Gibong River.
The hospitality of the Agusanons was overwhelming.  What started out as a birding trip turned into a true Agusan adventure for our group of ten (Adri and I, Tere, Alex, Tintin, Arnel, Felix, Nicky, Carmela and Edmundo).
I miss the quiet stillness of the marsh the most, and the insect bites the least.

In the meantime... back to reality in the heat of Manila.
