came out to Dagtipan on the Dagu

the country is flat but there are
many mountains which rise abrupt

the cultivation of rice. The natives
live on rice and fish. When the
titles ebb they leave lots of fish on
the shore, especially, shrimp and
lobsters. The disagreeable part of
this is that the odor of decaying
fish is everywhere and any one with
