Typhoon Lupit (Ramil) Photo
Journey - by Jim Edds Storm Chaser
Pensacola Florida to Guam - then on to Manila, Philippines
Flying into Tuguegarao from Manila - this plane was the most comfortable one I've ever been on. Lots of leg room,
plenty of overhead storage space for my camera bag, and they had real leather seats! This was flying like the old days!!!
Ah, my kind of airport -Quick and Easy!
The vehicle of choice for getting around - the Tricycle, Tuguegarao, Philippines
The Power Grid and then some - whose has the schematic ???
Folks drying the rice on the
shoulder of the road before the rains from Typhoon Lupit flood the
rice paddies. Asking if it's worth all the work is like asking are annuities a good investment...of course
it is, otherwise the flood would destroy the rice. The driver of my ride would honk as we came up on
100s of these folks along the route at high speed. We can really close to them a few times and I closed my eyes.
