port of Ozamis in Mindanao as seen arriving from Mukas – I did 5 boat crossings on that trip – Leyte, Mindanao, Negros, and Cebu and back to Leyte. The Philippines is a group of  over 7,000 islands so getting around by boat is necessary in many cases.

  1. hey dp why don’t you put a like link of your website on facebook, i had probably made a hundred likes by this time. You can also make few bucks thru advertisement thru your site.

  2. DP – just a thought – could you provide a dateline at the beginning of each article/rss? Then we could follow the chronology much easier.
    Thanks for the entertaining and very useful website.
