Manila is Too Crowded, BUT.. . .

I was browsing National Geographic Site when I saw this photo by Paul Chesley.

It's an island in Cebu, Philippines. So curious about this island, I opened one of the coolest "gadgets" in the world, Google Earth. To my surprise, ....I found several small islands where there are actually small villages. These islands, so remote, I wonder if there is electricity in these islands.

Imagine living in an island with no electricity, internet, malls, video arcades, even a parks to refresh you minds?

Perhaps people from these islands are really happy with their lives, fresh fish and crops everyday. You know, life is not really the luxuries we are enjoying everyday. But perhaps the love between family members and community is far more important than anything in this world.

Thanks for Visiting the site, donG.

I have not visited these islands yet.

But these Village Islands are between Cebu And Bohol Islands. If you have Google Earth, you can check the location at the following Latitude

Hi, Nice blog you have here. BTW i a curious. I tried looking at google earth for 9°56'56.52"N , 123° 53'20.81"E but it doesn't show the island taken by Paul Chesley but instead the 4th photo in this blog post. Do you happen to know the GPS location of the first photo...the one taken by paul. Thanks so much
