There’s nothing like feeling the warm sun on your skin, hearing the breeze brushing the trees, and experiencing the constant chatter inside a forest. It’s even better when you can see the horizon and the vast space we occupy, a reminder of the size of this world and our small place in it.
Meet the Streets is back! But this year is going to be different.
If you aren’t familiar with Meet the Streets, here’s a quick rundown. It’s a free event wherein we invite readers of the blog to join us as we walk through a location and take photographs along the way. In previous years, we’ve walked through Fuente and downtown Cebu.
This year, instead of walking the streets of Cebu, we’re going to be trekking inside the belly of a forest. The goal will be to reach the Buhisan Dam Basin.
A departure from previous Meet the Streets excursions, it’s a different kind of photography challenge. Old buildings will be replaced by the majesty of first generation trees. The city streets will morph into trails littered with greenery. The city will be replaced by the steady hand of nature, trees as far as the eye can see, the sky looking down on us. If we’re lucky, maybe we’ll even see an animal or two.
I’m not sure what to expect. We will be relying on a few people who have done the trek before. So we’ll see how it goes. As with all our previous Meet the Street events, the most important thing is to have fun.
Here are the details:

Who will be there?
Kahlil Corazo will be guiding us through the forest.
- Bring water at least 1 liter of water. You’ll need it.
- Cover as much of your body as possible to avoid thorny plants.
- There will be portions in the trek when you will need to use both hands. So a backpack for your stuff would be a good idea.
- Good walking shoes are a must.
- It would be best if you were in reasonably good shape. The trek might be a grind for some.
