Viva la Philippines – June 2009

Vacations are great. Ever since Tracy and I first started dating, she showed me the importance of taking a vacation and the need to just leave the daily grind once in awhile. This time, Tracy and I visited her family in the Philippines. With this being my first trip to the country, I was with camera the entire time. We had a wonderful time and I met many of her aunts, uncles, and cousins for the first time. Here are a few from that trip to the following islands: Bohol, Cebu, and Luzon (Manila/Ayala Alabang):

Here are the Philippine Tarsiers which is one of the smallest primates in the world and on the endangered species list. They are known to take their own lives due to stress. We weren’t allowed to handle them because of the endangered state, but we were lucky enough to see them:
