A good day to find peace in Sulu. Despite all the warnings and fake news that the place isn’t safe for a tourist nor a traveler, I got myself stuck in Jolo. Not just to tick off another province of the PH81, but to learn some of the cultures and practices in Mindanao. I never bothered walking under the sun while roaming around the town because there were so many things that were new to me, like their story, language, the food, and religious practices. To be honest, spending a day in Jolo will never be enough because there’s still a lot of stuff to learn and places to visit. I will surely come back for more stories, and unlimited laughter along with my newly found brothers.
