Photos: Rubber Plantation and Lamitan in Basilan

Our 2nd day in Basilan as spent in Lamitan, where the infamous siege of Lamitan in 2001 took place, and stretches of road containing trees that seep out rubber used to make tires (and perhaps maybe even prophylactics?).

Here are some photos I took.

A breathtaking view oif a canopy of rubber trees in Baluno, Isabela City, Basilan.

The group huddled together, examining the dried rubber that seeped out of the trees.
