We were greeted by these pretty T'boli ladies, so charming in their traditional dress, at their spacious and warm reception area.
This is Y'egas, one of the seasoned and gifted
T'boli women performers who have traveled the world
sharing T'boli's culture and art.
The cruise took about 45 minutes, not enough actually to round the islets and lagoons of the 354-hectare lake.
