Can anything be forgotten completely? Certainly. But it's not going to be a pair of abandoned train tracks in Silay city, Negros Occidental.
The tracks had previously been used to carry raw sugar to the coast. Today, enterprising locals run a fleet of human-powered pedi-cycle trains to provide inexpensive transportation along its 3.75 km length. One man's trash truly became another's treasure.
We thought the rural life would be worth a street photograph or two, so we hired our own trains and headed out for an adventure. The landscape along the way astonished us: vast sugar fields, endless swamps, abandoned fish pens, and a sprinkling of homes in the middle of nowhere. It was certainly a trip we would not soon forget. Enjoy.
(Pixel-peepers: The light was pretty harsh as we were outdoors at the wrong time of the day. But you take what you can and hope that you can be back again to do the place justice.)
