The Chocolate Hills

The Chocolate Hills is an unusual geological formation in Bohol, Philippines. It is composed of around 1,268 perfectly cone-shaped hills of about the same size, spread over an area of more than 50 square kilometers. They are covered in green grass that turns brown during the dry season, hence the name.

It´s real impressive, I had never seen such a beautiful scenery . How whimsical the nature can be at times?

The island of tarsiers

The Philippine Tarsier, considered by some to be the smallest primate, is indigenous to the island

I won't forget their big eyes . No wonder they hunt at night.

Blood compact

The Sandugo was a blood compact performed in native-Bohol style between the traveling Spanish explorer Miguel López de Legazpi and Datu Sikatuna of Bohol on March 16, 1565 in the Philippines to seal their friendship as part of the native custom. The pact was entered into by López de Legazpi for the purpose of insuring friendly relations between the Spaniards and the natives. This is considered as the first international treaty of friendship between two people of different races, a Filipino and a Spaniard. "Sandugo" is a Visayan term meaning "one blood"

Few people in my country are familiar with this story that has some conection with the history of Spain. By traveling we can learn a lot of things or interesting stories like this
