On today’s episode of Bisaya Buddy, we are going to the Bukid! What? You don’t know what the Bukid is? Just watch the video and you will soon learn!
Don’t worry, going to the Bukid is fun, you’ll have a great time, I am sure. Some of the people you will find in the Bukid are fun, and “salt of the earth” type of folks.
Some of the most fun I’ve had in the Philippines was in the Bukid, and I always enjoy going back again and again. We have some good friends who live in the Bukid that we like to go visit. One of those good friends is Father Franco and Italian Priest who has been living in the Philippines for nearly 50 years already. Father Franco has a farm in the Bukid and he prepares all kinds of specialty foods in an effort to help the Indigenous people in the Bukid, and he is very successful at that!
I have seen so many interesting things in the Bukid. Sometimes you will see cockfights right along the road. You will almost always see people riding horses on the highway or out in the fields. One thing I always watch for in the Bukid is what I call a “Kanobao” – an albino Carabao! These are always fun to see.
