Its morning in Biao, the mountain dwelling of the Manobo indigenous people group in Palimbang, Sultan Kudarat. There are no showers here. You walk to the spring. There you meet kids washing and filling their families water jugs. Try not to wonder if its potable water. At the village, I massage a little girl’s back with oil. She has a fever and a severe cough. She has been sick for a while now, says her mother, there is no doctor.

Here in Biao nothing except the view, comes easy.
