The center of Dipolog at night during Christmas. It is a truly wonderful sight, the decorations and the small stall and the sounds of people. It is truly captivating. As a Brit, I thought our towns were well decorated at Christmas, but boy you have not seen anything until you have gone to Dipolog.

We stayed with Pastor Simbran in Filkids, Uppper Turno. For three weeks we experienced the wonders of this Orchid City. The people a so friendly and helpful, it was a real joy to visit.
