Children playing. Paradise Village, Libertad.

Shot while riding a 'motorsikad' (A combination of trisikad (man powered tricycle) and a pumpboat--Layrayski definition)

I remember sites like this from Cagayan de Oro.

Lingaw no? And the road is quiet so its not (too) dangerous for them.

Hilda said...

Aww, I remember doing that when we were kids spending summers in Lucban, Quezon. Mahirap rin niyan ha! ;)

Layrayski said...

Ah! Brings back memories, eh? Unfortunately I haven't played that game, ever. (Buhuhu) So lucky you!

Hey, how's the weather up there in the north? I hope you're all ok.

Oh how lovely - that's a great action shot!

Layrayski said...

Thanks Jackie! I'm glad you like it!

look how much fun those kids are having, they don't need high tech toys like nintendos and computers. this way they are active and enjoying the outdoors too. here the kids are bombarded with all kinds of toy which they play with once, twice, thrice and then that's it.

i agree, the photo reminds me of my childhood days as well - carefree and stress free. i never played that game too, but i used to see other kids love it.

Vlado&Toni- Kayni--I wrote a blog about this before, about how poverty can be a good thing. But only if it doesn't eat at your soul of course.

When my cousins and I are younger we played with bottles, bottle caps, boxes, papers and other garbage as well as the barbie's. It helps develop creativity. Or so I'd like to think hehe

Hi Tammie! Thanks for visiting Butuan! Hehe I passed by those kids while going to an archaeological site. I was charmed by their exuberance. Like a daily photo blogger that I am I thought they'd make a cool photo for my site. Unfortunately, I'm really quite shy, and I don't want them to pose for my pic so I decided to wait, hoped they're still playing after I finish with my thing. So yup. That's why I took a photo of them while I was riding the trisikad. Hehe scaredy cat, that's me.
