Like what I said in my farewell post, I was sent by our office to a ship for a project. So there, I live in a ship for almost a month and walked on land just for few hours.
I did miss land, but I did not kiss it like the shaken sailors during the Age of Discoveries.
Finally, I got a glimpse of this island
That island is Corregidor Island. The island that used to be the formidable fortress against enemies who desire to attack Manila until it was destroyed by the Japanese during the World War.
I did not go to Corrigedor Island but I just looked at it from afar. :-)
I also got the chance to see Manila from the sea. Yeah, Manila is too smoky and the air is polluted. It is no wonder why some Metro Manilans are suffering from respiratory illnesses.
Hazy Manila in the early morn.
I am also lucky to reach the town of Bulan. Finally, I could say that I set my foot on my father's home province, which is Sorsogon in Bicolandia.
Bulusan Volcano is shown in the photo above. Unfortunately, there are clouds blocking Bulusan's peak.
Almost a month away from home. Almost a month away from the Internet. Almost a month feeling the rocking of the sea whenever you wake up. Well, at least I experienced part of a seaman's life.
