Braiding rainbows in Odikin

Braiding rainbows Braiding Rainbows Braiding rainbows Braiding Rainbows

After our amazing walk among the giant Pili trees in Odikin, a quaint  mountain village in Bulusan, we were offered refreshing drinks in the modest home of Oya Choleng. In the adjacent living room of Mabel, her daughter, Jomabel her grand daughter was busy watching TV while braiding colorful strips of buri palm leaves.

It was just like seeing her braiding long stretches of miniature rainbows! So wonderful, I sighed. It Added more points to the magical realism of  an already marvelous trek to the Pili Kingdom of Bulusan.
