You can even submerge yourself in the water if you want.

Old Jail vs Modern One (22 pics + 1 video)

Posted in Pictures 23 Mar 2010   / 10950 views

The Cebu in the Philippines has two jails. One of them is an old colonial prison overcrowded with prisoners who make their own rules there and where the guards won’t go if they are not at least 20 people in protected outfits and with snipers on the walls who keep an eye on inmates, in case they tried to pull something off.
Another prison: Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center is the opposite. It is highly protected, they have “fingerprint scanners, closed-circuit TV, and orange uniforms” which is built according to American jail model.
We will mostly talk about the second prison, but there are some interesting facts about Bagong Buhay Rehabilitation Center too.

Who would have predicted that ordinary rain can do that with a river in a such idyllic place of Mag-Aso falls on Bohol Island, Philippines.
Everything was normal when suddenly the water began to rise very quickly, the waterfall started to fall heavily and the river current accelerated.
The two guys who were in the water at that time found themselves trapped under the waterfall. This continued for several hours ... The bodies of two guys were found a couple days later, 5 km from this place that seemed to be a little piece of paradise...

About 10,000 Filipino families live in the northern town cemetery in Manila.
Some of them got there by accident. Some inherited the mausoleums from their great-grandparents and now live in there. Others came from the province and are unable to earn enough money to live in a big city.
In all cases, mainly families have nowhere to go.

New plant discovered in the Philippines is a giant rat-eating plant! (44 pics)

Posted in Pictures 20 Aug 2009   / 20192 views

Scientists have discovered a flesh-eating plant so big that it can swallow and devour a whole rat! This new species is called Nepenthes attenboroughii, it has been named after British nature expert Sir David Attenborugh.
This plant, which is a member of the ‘pitcher’ family can grow more than 4-foot long. That’s actually one of the biggest carnivorous plants discovered yet.
Those plants produce big ‘pitchers’ which are filled with water and they also secrete nectar that attracts insects and rodents. Once those poor creatures fall in, they cannot escape and end up drowning, and then, the acids and enzymes do their job.
Generally, only the bones of the prey remain…

There are bicycle rickshaws or motorized rickshaws. And here, in the Philippines in Manila, there is a special kind of rickshaw – “rail rickshaw”.
The cost of the travel is low: 6-10 Philippine pesos ($ 0.12 - $ 0.21) depending on the distance. The only inconvenience - you have to let the trains pass.
