in the Philippines...

Saturday Sister Russell, Sister Breese and I headed up to the fiesta in Ilagan.
They had about 100 little shops in portable tents. It was around 100 degrees and
those tents were so hot. But on the way we stopped and took a few pictures. It's
quite interesting what you can see here--only in the Philippines!

On the side of the road was this
little meat shop and proudly hanging was a cow's head complete with the eyeballs
intact. We stopped and got a picture but failed to ask how much the head

This motorcycle with little side
cart passed was trying to pass us. Not sure how much wood he was toting.

This pizza parlor is owned by
members of the church and in this picture they show the concept of tithing. On
the tenth slice there was a tithing envelope and money. We thought that was
