Bridges of Leyte

Leyte is home of not only that famed bridge called San Juanico Bridge, but of bridges whose number can be so easily noticed, recurring every 5 minutes of your time on a road trip. These bridges over rivers link cities and towns of this very mountainous province.

The last time, which was last year, I traveled by bus in Leyte. I made it a point to capture its bridges along the way. I have seen and often forgotten they exist for the many times I've visited the province maybe because land trips could be so tiring, and I mind too much gathering energy for the next stop. But it changed last year. I did capture about 20 bridges or anything close to that, I couldn't be too sure.

Making Sense of It All

Loving living despite the harsh realities of life is a good hope, and it is something that no one can take away from you. I am the captain of my own ship, sailing in turbulent waters, mastering its might and finding refuge to the calm. I will always be the perennial optimist that I am.

I salute these people for finding strength in the life they have and braving every minute of it. All of it makes sense to me.
