Beyond Words

Finally, I was able to visit the Ifugao Rice Terraces in Batad, Banaue!

These some-2,000-year old rice terraces of the Cordilleras was designated as a UNESCO Cultural Heritage Site in 1995. The Ifugaos — the indigenous people here — have been carefully cultivating these rice paddies, creating a seemingly endless series of terraced fields that climb thousands of feet. The paddies follow the natural contours of the mountains, adding to the site’s rugged natural beauty. These fields, and the knowledge to farm and sustain them, have been passed down from generation to generation for centuries.


About Seeing with Brahmin eyes
My sense of humor can be keen, sarcastic, silly or corny -- sometimes all at once. I enjoy meeting new people with no preconceived ideas about what or what is not possible. You get much more out of life by being open minded and willing. I'm an easy going, good-natured person who loves life and loves people. I'm both optimistic and realistic and pretty objective when it comes to assessing situations, events, etc. In general I am a very positive person and you'll usually find we with a smile on my face.
