Since the last hostage crises in the extremely south of the Philippines it seems
that some people became a little bit worried about their travel planes. I'm not
that hero without any fear, but I had learned to use my common sense.
Have you ever thought about the probability to become a victim in a hostage crises.
I think it is much more possible to get an injury during a traffic accident.
There are so many simple danger in our daily life that we should try to be cool without
this exaggerated panic making. You may know what I mean if you ever have been back from a trip
to the Philippines and your boss looked astonish about the fact that you are still alive instead
of being a victim of a shark, pirates or somthing else. The most nerve-racking behaviour of
your colleagues are the questions after all this exotic venereal diseases. The best
answer will be the statement that they don't have this diseases there, because all
this respected bourgeois of your little town have never been there. Indeed AIDS is a problem,
but worldwide and not only in the Philippines. Therefore you should use your condoms.
I'm sure that it will be more dangerous to deviate from this rule in your own country,
but protection is better than death. I remember one of this days where the Sabang girls
had their weekly check up. On such a day you don't should forget your camera like me.
Believe me if you see three or four Jeepneys packed over and over with young laydies and
you don't have anything to record this unbelievable picture, you will get annoyed much.
I wish I could show you pictures like this. Sometimes I try to imagine how hard the
work of this one doctor must be. This is probably the hardest strain of nerves ever.
I remember one shooting at a fair of eroticism here in Berlin where I couldn't change the film after
all, because of my flutter hands and paralysed brain. I tell you man I hope that
this doc has more coolness than I to avoid mistakes. Anyway I trust my condoms more
than the unbelievable work of this doc. Huh what for a man who examine 100 or 120
girls during one morning.
I don't know why, but when I had asked people
in my country what they would know about the Philippines, they tell me nearly
nothing, but they all had heard about this beautiful girls. Indeed Filipinas are
the most beautiful girls on this planet, but this country offers more. If you
don't dive I recommend you to learn it in the Philippines. This underwater world is
the best I have ever seen in my life. I couldn't wait to dive there again, but I had a cold.
Guess what I did, I had ignored all what I've learned about diving with a constipated
nose. Fortunately my first dive wasn't very deep. It was easy to go down, but hard to
emerge. I felt this stabbing pain above my nose and suddenly my mask was filled with blood.
Later they were telling me that it would be very easy to estimate the direction of the current,
because of my blood track was the best sign for it. All of us were sorry that
sharks aren't follow my blood track. The result of this bloody disaster was an
immediately dive stop for me. What for a luck to stay in Sabang where nobody know
what boredom is. Maybe I have to stop diving and the photography underwater, but
nothing can keep me away from this nightlife action. I had decided to drink like a
whale,at this night, as a young lady asked me why I would look so much sad. I told her
that all germans would look like me aside from my big nose, because of the war that
had our grandfathers brought all over Europe. She gave me a lot of consolation by
telling me that my nose would not be so much big as I think. To continue this topic, she
mentioned that Filipinos would have flat noses and what for a look for me to have
this very big nose. In such a moment I can forget all this nasty insults about my nose
I had to listen in my childhood. This point could be interesting by finding an answer
of the question: Why does Henry love the Philippines so much ?
The first time when I visited the Philippines as an 26 years old young man I could
feel how unimportant it is to have a big or small nose.
Filipinos prefer white skin and I love dark skin. What for a luck for each other.
All my worry about my appearance were
blowing away through the first Filipina I have ever met.
During my first Manila night I have visited a brothel in a suburb of Manila.
I was to drunk for love, but the picture of all this cute girls which were
touching my nose will never leave my brain. I wish I could remember the name of that place,
but this wear down flight had giving me the rest.
The first thing which was
in my mind during my first stay in the Philippines was: what for a odd world where
I came from ! This world I mean is Europe where every second a teenage girl get a operated or
corrected nose or breasts with synthetic material inside or what ever.
I don't remember any TV-soups where the postman
don't look like George Clooney. What for a world where the muscular system
counts more than the brain. The most important things in the Philippines are your attitude
and your smile. And that is all what it needs to find friends.
Everything is very naturally.
A rich land like Germany have to import the intelligence from India and other nations to
control our computer systems, because the body cult of our kids let them no time to develop their brains.
Back to the nature means back to the Philippines where
the finest people live and where the intelligence should recover.
This girl which speak to me in that night after my failed dive, should become my
girlfriend for a long time. Sometimes I thought she would be an angel, because of
her nice attitude. Obvious it was unpleasant for her to ask me first, but I was
blind in that night. Later I should find out that she came from
Puerto Galera, so that I could visit her home and family.
