Taytay, Palawan

Taytay, a small village in the province of Palawan in the Philippines.

It faces Taytay Bay, and to the east, there are a handful of tiny islands. Everyday supplies are loaded onto the boats here, and then they make their way to them.

The clams you see a couple meters into the water are about the size of a fist, but if you go diving, you can see shells this large. 

The dogs were all collarless, were never touched, and were perpetually inactive. All unimaginable in Tokyo dogs. 

I never tired of finding chickens with chicks. 

Made a pit stop at one of the many general stores lining the main road. Since Taytay itself is not a place where tourists stay, these stores are for the locals. 

Did not expect to see an anime bike here. 

Waiting for transportation. 

The main mode of transportation in Taytay, where perhaps it is not populous enough for jeepneys. I even saw a boat being transported by tuk-tuk. 

All of the boats I saw in Taytay were trimarans. The water was often choppy; perhaps it provided balance?

Precariously perched.
