The "Iwahig" boys

We went to Palawan in 2009 and part of the tour is to visit the Iwahig Penal Farm. This is a penal facility where prisoners, get a treatment out of the ordinary "ball and chains" approach. They farm, make crafts, create a living. The result? A low escape rate. This is other than the fact that they have no where else to go when they get out because the facility is miles away from Puerto Princesa.

Photo was taken after one of the Iwahig boys called me out, saying "kuya kunan mo naman kaming mga pogi!" And so I obliged. Funny because the kid who called out for a picture was the one on the right. Looks like he wanted a solo shot...
