From Davao today, let me move back briefly to Dumaguete last week.
On the last Saturday of the month, Dumaguete marks the end of May with a traditional Flores de Mayo parade along the main streets. The different barangays, each assigned a flower as theme, put up their contingent for the pageant. It's a colorful and dynamic combination of costumes and street dancing.
Some scenes border on the absurd, such as this dancing army of cross-dressing transgenders. Yes, those are men. The horror, the horror....
Fortunately, the beauties are also out in full force. Now, really, that's a sight for sore eyes.
