Monday photo - 31st December


'Be careful not to fall in...'. Our guide's voice drifted back along the line as he nimbly negotiated his way up and down layers and layers of rice terraces.Chickens looked up from their constant pecking as the rest of us eased our way along with more care, whilst above us the weather changed in seconds from pouring rain, to bursts of sun, to rain again. The air lay thick around us as we panted our way down, and then up, the steep hills. The main draw to Banaue and Batad in the Philippines, the rice terraces are often dubbed 'the eighth wonder of the world' (although, aren't most places nowadays?) and are certainly impressive. Just don't forget your raincoat.
