Chocolate Hills

Faced with an Easter without chocolate (easter eggs are distinctly lacking in the Philippines) we headed for the next best thing: The Chocolate Hills. Unfortunately they do not taste like chocolate but a walk to the top of the viewpoint gives you a pretty impressive view.

Legend has it that they were created when a giants tears hit the earth – and although I like that idea I was hoping for a more geologically accurate explanation. However, the best the information sign could manage was: The chocolate hills were created ages ago. Hmmmm.

Great scenery though and the drive up there was fantastic even if it did take a little longer than it should due to my 50km/hr speed limit imposed on Ange.
