Portrait of an Island

Last December I went to the Philippines. Here are some pictures I took of one of my favorite islands in the world, my own best-kept-secret: Siquijor Island. A Turkish neighbor of mine once said, 'When you go to Siquijor, it's as if time stops.' It's one of those things that you have to experience yourselves to understand. It also happens to be known as the 'witch island' of the Philippines but that's a whole other post. You'll notice themes of a strong Roman Catholic influence which is especially prominent in the rural areas of the Philippines, save the Muslim areas.
