This is at my wife's home in Alangalang, Leyte, Philippines (one hour from Tacloban). Everything you see was replaced after the typhoon in 2013. We came for Fiesta and are still here. Each village has a different date for fiesta. Think of it like mardi gras. A day of fasting and a day of feasting. I stashed the $650 camera before the party started so I don't have any of the party.

This is REAL pic heavy. I dumped half of the pics and added some of the town for context. I will describe the cookout and then let the pics do the talking.

We bought 2 pigs for Fiesta. The two guys in the next two pics are my brothers in law, Marlon and Monching. They butchered a hog the night before and cooked soups and BBQ with it. Then they did this cookout. Marlon is a jack of all trades. He works in the rice pattys and was elbo to elbo with me on all my home improvement projects. If it needs doing, He can get it done. I just hope teaching him how to do electrical work doesn't come back to bite him in the ass.

I started the slideshow in the middle of the set (when the coals fired up) to get to the good part. The first half is at the bottom, where they butcher the hog and get it on the bamboo. The bamboo is resting on banana tree trunks.

The guts, hooves, blood and every part of the pig was used for something. These people don't waste food.

My Canon T6 takes some learning. The blurry pics were when I deligated some picture taking while I rewired the house and she turned off the auto focus. (OMG, the wiring! One 14 guage romex with no ground for a meter loop. just a 220 hot and a common. AND the romex is molded over the wires so the stripping is a PITA. Then there are no freaking wire nuts in this country. everything is electrical taped, inside and out)

OK, back on topic, ENJOY!

Marlon


Monching





OK, I HAD to sneak my daughter in here somewhere, didn't I??






















































































































































AND, Now we rewind to the start!!

Those boys aren't bashful about gutting a hog, are they? Laughing

Amazing vacation.

What was the fuel?

How do you know when it is done ?

Spices ?

Sides?

I do see corn I think.
