Trip to the North

I’ve just returned from a few days in the northern part of the country. We toured several research & extension facilities and saw the rice terraces at Banaue. We also met with local farmers, both in the lowlands and, the next day, in the rice terraces. The next few posts, when I get them up, will focus on bits and pieces of this trip in more detail – there’s too much to cram into a single post. For all the mothers out there, I didn’t even feel the 6.4 earthquake that apparently happened at sea just north of Luzon – or maybe I was just sleeping too soundly!

    Well, I was without internet for a bit but my host parents finally found the password code thing (I’m in PA and I started my service dog internship on Monday). I’m glad to see that you have made many posts as I freak myself out here in amish country and need to take my mind off ghosts and bad guys.

    These photos that you are posting, have you been taking them yourself? Do you have to ask permission before taking a stranger’s photo?

    ahhh earthquake!!!

    Yay PA! Have fun with the doggies and whomever you might know in the area 🙂

    Yes, I take all the pictures that go up here, and yes, I ask permission when photographing people up close. I haev mixed feelings about photography – I feel like its a bit objectifying and puts up a wall sometimes, although at other times peolpe really enjoy it and everyone has fun and builds connection.

    Don’t get eaten by ghosts!
