Ulingan” is a place where charcoals (“uling” in Filipino) are made.  In Sitio Damayan, Vitas, Tondo, residents earn around P60-70 ($1.4-2) a day. The meager amount of money they bring home to their families can never justify the health risks they are exposed to. I cannot even last for five minutes.

    This is a beautiful set. You might want to enter these photos to the Discovery channel photo contest.

      Thank you very much! But I don’t think the photos are of Discovery Channel caliber. Maybe in the succeeding years, I will have the courage (and the talent) to join the contest.
