Horses smorses - Part Apat

I couldn’t go any further than this….too frightened!





This is a pic of the above area in the distance.














At the top looking down from where I brought the horse(I talk like I had control of where this horse went…yeah right!)















Another view of the trail.......

















The fence that keeps me from falling over!!














Any one know what this is? Oregano!

















A couple of different things here.

The boy in the blue shirt is “peeling” a coconut – with a great big machete and he was FAST…I was thinking the whole time…holy crap he’s going to cut his hand off!!

And do you notice what is tucke din the arm of the guy in the background wearing a hat? Yup a semi-automatic gun…..GUN…..OMG!!


I figure … if boy cuts his hand off maybe the guy shoots him to put him out of his misery- - cause I haven’t seen any hospitals??





Um –why is the guy with the gun looking at me like that??




















Oh the humiliation begins (and the downward trip)! (see pics from yesterday)





















A "Jeepney" up close

















Bathroom issues…I have bathroom issues!









Of course we must give Kudos to Travis for wearing my hat so graciously and getting his pic taken!!









Mango trees







So after this trek we were beat ---I mean even riding this horse up the mountain and down in the simmering heat was exhausting… I can only imagine how Travis felt - although he spends a bit more time in the gym each day than me -----the fed us lunch - Rice, chicken, pork and fish (with HEAD of course)

It was a pretty quiet trip back (yes I said Quiet....I know it's hardly beleiveable!)

Two days later I definetly knew I had not rode a horse in 15 years... I have to say that I did laugh while mounted on that horse....it was defintely......interesting.....

Hope all are enjoying the blog - we expect to be home on Feb 9 (late)!

In the mean time - stay tuned for future episodes!! (please note we are headed to Villa Escuardo on the weekend so that should be FUN FUN FUN!)



Want a preview?? teehee - I have my own "trailer"...

OMG! I can't stop laughing! Let me catch my breath.

Ok, I couldn't help but snort, yes I said snort, at the commentary on the guy with the gun. Just a minute while I snort again. OMG SUSAN! You are too funny!

I love the way you write ... it's just like the way you talk ... I can totally imagine you saying all those things.

Ok, I am off to look at the Villa Escudero.

You rode the horse **UP** the hill too? I totally think that would of been scarier then the trip down the hill. Did you feel like you were going to fall off the horse backwards?

I didn't know Oregano looked so pretty.

Mauh, Nick
