Visiting the Philippines - Climbing up Mount Apo

Mount Apo is a large stratovolcano on the island of Mindanao in the Philippines. It is the highest mountain in the country and overlooks Davao City, a few kilometres to the northeast. Its name means "master" or "grandfather". Apo is flat topped, with three peaks, and is capped by a 500 m wide volcanic crater containing a small crater lake. It is a source of geothermal energy, but the date of its most recent eruption is unknown, and none are verified in historic times.

Making of the film The Kings of Sheba

It has now been more than two years since Yemen went through what could be considered a historic election. For the first time ever a woman (in fact several of them) decided to contest the presidential race there.

We happened to be there with a camera, in fact both, in our hands and here is a photoessay of what came out of our three and half month stay in Yemen in 2006.
