Tuesday the Seventh

A Field Trip and Championship Match

February 7, Tuesday

 It's not everyday that one gets to visit a cave once used by the Katipuneros and the Japanese soldiers

I am very claustrophobic so when I accompanied a Journalism class [along with their prof ->my boss, friend and media colleague - Mr. Rick Olivares] from the Ateneo to a field trip to the Wawa dam I felt extremely stressed when we explored a cave.  It's strange, but, in the first few minutes in the cave, my Canon SLR wouldn't work !!  Halfway through, though, it finally functioned and I got to shoot 2 JPEGs by mini flashlight.  Caught the faces of Bea Recto [left] and German Steph Martschei for my only "cave photo souvs".

Spelunking - No way !! This cave trip was definitely my last. 
 Open space adventures would be more to my liking. 
Am Planning to go to a mini-expedition to the Mongolian Steppes 
sometime this coming June !! - [with some professional guides, of course].

 - Taken at the Wawa Dam -

 What else is there to do but take pictures ?

 - A brief raft ride to the other side [where the cave is] -

 - Before we entered the cave -

- Right after we came out of the cave.

Calvin Abueva savors his 2nd Straight Championship
[with his boy ->James Calvin] after finishing 2nd to San Beda at the NCAA 
last year and then dethroning the PCCL Champions Ateneo Blue Eagles.

RR Garcia [below] also experienced the heartache that comes 
with being a Runner-Up. Garcia was with the Tamaraws, 
[who lost to the Blue Eagles last 2011 at the UAAP Championship].

Both were instrumental in the NLEX Road Warriors' Championship Run
[along with the likes of Dave Marcelo and Eman Monfort - their opponents in the NCAA and UAAP Championships, respectively].

But I'd like to cap this post with a 3-frame sequence 
of Chris Ellis' Slamma Jamma.
