Journey to Medina
- Sept. 3, 2011, 7:05 a.m.
We went on a three-day journey to Medina, Misamis Oriental. It was part of our requirements in our subject in photography. We went on that journey riding a bus for four hours, knowing what lies ahead. When we arrived in Medina, we saw the place as very quaint. The place is described by its natural scenery...
When we first had our activity in the South Poblacion, we saw another side of Medina. Despite its natural beauty in its beaches and its thriving industries, there are some people who are very poor in some parts of the town. We saw many houses and the walkways are very thin. The houses were very cramped up to each other. The place was also filled with mosquitoes everywhere. When we interviewed some of the families, they say that there were some bad happenings in the south. They say that there were many cases of dengue there and many were hospitalized. They even say that there were even floods in Medina as high as one-third of the height of the door. However, some people were not bothered by their state. In fact, in times of calamities, the residents claimed that the town government was able to get things done.
