Taste the Local Flavor - Pawa, Tupig, atbp.
Favorite thing: .
The place is famous for their native delicasies such as those in the picture. The white round one is called "Pawa" made from pounded sticky rice (made in the consistency of flour) with sweetened peanuts inside. "Tupig" is like suman but instead of steaming, it was roasted to give it a nice smoky flavor. I don't know the name of the delicacy in the second pic but it is also made from sweetened sticky rice and cooked using bamboo. How to eat it? You just have to strike the bamboo to any hard surface for it to break then scoop the sticky rice inside.

You're on your own, sylly!
Favorite thing: Off I go with my kayak going down the river. It wasn't scary at all. Quite exhilarating actually. The guides were ahead of us in a boat and there were two others behind us on kayaks.
I fell out of mine into the water but it wasn't as scary as it sounds. I'd do it over and over again! Anytime!

Practice Makes Perfect
Favorite thing: We practiced our kayaking skills in calm waters before they took us upriver to tackle the rapids. I still remember how quiet it seemed...how peaceful. It felt like I was truly away from home and detached from the rest of the world. The scenery was spectacular.
