Today is ANOTHER holiday in the Philippines. The IWU students at IRRI took advantage of our 3 day weekend and traveled to Puerto Galera. We stayed in a hotel right on the beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean. We spent all day Saturday swimming and enjoying the small island. Sunday, we took a short hike to see waterfalls. It was the most amazing place I’ve ever been, and the pictures can’t quite do it justice. The fresh water was perfectly cool and clear. It’ll be hard to top this vacation trip.
