Here is another shot from near the settlements of the Badjao at Karagasan on the coast of Zamboanga. When we first arrived at the area, I made my way down to the beach to see the sand which I remembered as being full of seashells when I was a little kid. I was disappointed that the beach was now crowded and quite polluted, and the seashells were pretty much gone. I hear that there are still beaches as I remember them on the other side of the peninsula, and on the other less populated islands around here, in particular Basilan. On my next trip I’ll have to go to those places.

I was quite happy, though, to see that the water was full of little kids playing. These kids were, I presume, from the settlement I posted a photo of yesterday. Their parents were nowhere around, but they certainly seemed quite used to being in that water.

We leave Zamboanga tomorrow and fly back to Manila. We’ll be staying there for a few days. Stay tuned!
