Mountains

5 Aug

I’ve always marvelled at the indomitable human spirit.  When there is a need, there will be a person with a can-do attitude that has an idea that can present itself as a solution to a crisis.

Lovingly referred to by most Filipinos as the “eight wonder of the world,” the Banaue Rice Terraces are believed to be about 2000 years old.  The terraces are located approximately 1500 meters above sea level and cover about 10,360 square kilometers of mountainside.  To this day, the locals still plant rice and vegetables on the the terraces.
