Lake Danao is shaped like a guitar or a number 8. They used to have lots of crocodiles here. Now it is a fishery. Picture by my cousin Junks Muana.

Our last trip to Camotes Island was really fun and stressful. We were about 30 family members and it was hard to organize something for 30 people as everyone had a different agenda on their minds. We did our best to make it as fun and as harmonious as possible. Some of us just flew in from abroad, and was thriving on a foreign clock, and a couple of days later, we were whisked off to the islands. So we made sure we can catch up with our R & R (rest and recreation) in the islands. That means, taking our own hair stylist who was a transvestite(girl-boy) and her assistant and a blind masseur. It's too bad, we were not able to take our manicurist and cosmetologist. :) What better way to relax by the beach?
