Tribal Wars Still Exist

I was disheartened to learn that tribal wars still exist in my beautiful native province. A relative just visited and informed me that after 6 pm, everyone should be inside their houses because of existing tribal wars between villages or barrios.

After all these years, they still exist? What can be in the mind set of my co-Kalingans? Wasn't there enough bloodshed already? Could we not give peace a chance?

The beautiful picture is courtesy of Nats Dalanao. Thanks,Nats. Nats is the author of the wonderful blog :"Kalinga Tambayan,". Visit his blog and enjoy more of the culture of the Kalingas.

What can be the reasons for this continuing bloodshed? I can't find the answers, anyone who can help me?

Choose Your Airport Taxi Transfers Well

Comfortable and affordable Airport taxi transfers can make your travel a wonderful experience. Taxi transfers from the airport can prove difficult if you have not planned properly for your travel. Traveling can be fun if you have prepared your itinerary meticulously. Your plan should include transportation from the time you leave your house up to the airport, and from the airport to your final place of destination.

If someone cannot fetch you from the airport, taxis are your best mode of transportation especially if you are traveling with babies and children. If you have additional pieces of luggage like sports gears, then you have to plan your transportation carefully so that you will not panic when transport is not available.

Utilize excellent transfer services to ensure a smooth and trouble-free journey. Prepare your transportation well to ascertain your safety and convenience. Coupled with these two important factors, is the affordability of the transportation. You can choose private or the less expensive group transfers.

In the case of the Kalinga provinces, you can hire a taxi from the city but this would be at exorbitant prices. You should scout around for less expensive rates. You could also hire one on a contractual basis. If you know where to look, you will be able to find a secure, safe and affordable taxi or transportation.

Traveling should be a rewarding and relaxing experience, and not a harrowing and tiresome activity. Plan your vacation well and enjoy!

Colorful Kalinga Costumes

Vibrant colors characterize the Kalinga costumes. The "bongol" or necklace are precious stones from barter or trade with the Chinese, which are used as wonderful accessories.
