The sun rises in Tawi-tawi

BONGAO-Tawi-tawi - It was drizzling when we arrived at the airport here one early morning.

Finally, we reached the southernmost tip of the Philippine archipelago. Mindanao, as always, strikes me as enigmatic.

It’s bustling too but way underdeveloped as in many places in the island. At the Chinese Pier, people go about their daily struggle of making a living.

What’s to see here, I will never fully know, much so understand but I will savor the time and the rays of the sun shining from far, far away.
