>After Cebu, Davao

What about a city that greets you at the airport with a giant durian? For those of you who don’t know, it’s a famously stinky fruit and you can’t be in Davao for 5 minutes without someone asking you if you have tried it. Me? I had a durian candy and my mouth tasted like durian for the next hour. The best part of Davao was spending time with the Cinerehiyon gang, filmmakers from the regions (try saying “region” like it was Spanish). Exciting to be around young,idealistic filmmakers. They were assembled for three days, a gathering of the tribe by Teddy Co. Really exciting, and fun to go on a boatride with them. Joel with his editor Manny, and John with RJ, our brilliant tour organizer.


John and I had a quiet Valentines Day on nearby Samar.
