High Horse - Part Dalawa






















PS: Actually Phillipinos LOVE Americans (all of the tours are Americans did this, Americans did that – thank goodness for the Americans)













VIEW OF TAAL VOLCANO FROM TAGATY






















see the tree in front of that house (the tallest one) its a pine tree!









This guy(leaning against the pole) was selling Bonsai trees – Wes remember when we went to Greenvillage and Tara and I were looking at that little one – do you remember the price? It was really expensive. Anyhow the ones here were around 2000 pesos for one with 2 trees growing in a pot or 1500 for one with 1 tree (if I was really interested in the tree I imagine I could have “haggled” but not sure I could have got it through immigration!)













Another pic of Pineapple fields – I don’t know if you can notice how STEEP this bank is. Very very steep!!










































Another view of Taal Crater– getting closer!!

















Signage!
My fave......flowers…..

How many more days?! Are you going to tell us or just show up and surprise us? I can't wait to hear your stories in person!

Hmmm....not often you go somewhere and Americans are loved. Well, at least they have one country that likes them.

Loving the pics! And yeah, when are you going to tell us your return date? Huh?

Nick, coffee beans are really the seeds. Those green fruits, called cherries, turn bright red, are picked, fruit removed (apparently it's quite sweet and tasty), coffee beans are cleaned and then roasted. Usually there are two beans/fruit. If there is only one, it's called a peaberry and is quite coveted because it has 2x the caffeine. I had to look this up after Sue's pics, I was so curious to see how coffee is cultivated.
