    Will I get to step even on a quarter of the islands of the Philippines? :norton
    (that's even too many to dream for :D)

    `````````````````````````````````````````````````

    Let me start from here...

    My very first long ride with my 125cc bike

    [​IMG]

    the volcano on a lake.... Taal.

    [​IMG]
    at the Tagaytay Yacht Club

    [​IMG]

    with some of the first people whom i was able to ride with.

    has anyone tried the BULALO in the Mahogany Market in Tagaytay?

    it's my first taste of it... and it's really good..

    More, more, more.
    I expect to see your pictures of
    Aurora Province during your ride
    there.
    Also, your challenging trips to Tapulao
    and Pulag.
    Keep it up, my friend.
    We were together on several rides!

    Nice photos again. :)

    One hasn't see rain until they have been in a tropical rain, and then add the wind of a typhoon. Flash floods and/or mud slides can be a real danger in many areas. Glad you were okay. The Army must have been out looking for rebels?
