It was a few years ago when we took these pictures in the gold mining village of Gango, which is part of Libona in Bukidnon province, in Northern Mindanao.

As the crow flies, Gango is a few kilometres from our house in Cugman.

This gold mining town is located behind Cagayan de Oro City and can be reached on foot from the barangays of Gusa, Cugman or Indahag.

We came into contact with the chairman of the gold prospectors’ cooperative during our visit, and he showed us some tunnels.

We visited this place again and this time found entry to the neighbouring tunnels. I was able to capture all this in a video, with the camera also going underground.

Once upon a time Lady Gerlinda and Dieter had a large number of large dogs of various breeds.

The main player was our Hovawart JAMES, brought from Germany. Later we were joined by Boomer and a pair of Doberman Pinschers. In addition, there were several mixed breeds, since there was no Hovawart girl and, as far as we know, James was the only one of his kind in the Philippines, he mated with our German shepherd.

Those were the days when we walked down the street with up to seven huge dogs on a leash.

What do we get here? Four line men of the electric utility company? NO!! That are several very young zip line users at CAMPO JUAN in Manolo Fortich.

Our lovely Fritzie is arriving at the zip line station. Since she is too young to fly the zip line alone, some of the extreme friendly staff of CAMPU JUAN is assisting in a tandem ride.

Fritzie’s younger brother is arriving in the next tandem flight.

Now the two awaiting with their grandma the arrival of ‘Hapon’ and his Mom.

Here they come. All managed the zip lines with bravery.

Before the zip lines last stretch, they had to manage the hanging bridge. Wow, in the middle of the bridge Fritzie lost all her courage, but finally every one of our youngest group ever managed to reach the end point of this very exciting and adventurous task.

Bravo Fritzie, Darius, Hapon and Mom.

After that, they had been awarded with a meal, coz the driver (me) was very, very hungry.
