Philippines is an island country of Southeast Asia in the western Pacific Ocean. It is an archipelago consisting of more than 7,000 islands and islets lying about 500 miles (800 km) off the coast of Vietnam. Manila is the capital of Phillipines.
There are at least 1,260 hills spread over an area of more than 50 square kilometres. They are covered in green grass that turns brown during the dry season. That’s why they are called Chocolate Hills.
A cute little Tarsier in its natural habitat. Tarsiers are the world’s smallest primate at the size of a human fist.

I was enchanted to meet these strange critters at a semi-wild sanctuary on Bohol Island that is working to rebuild the Philippine Tarsier population.
