A postcard from - The Chocolate HIlls, The Philippines

'Only found in Bohor, the world-renowned, cone-shaped Chocolate Hills is one of the world's natural wonders. Spread over the municipalities of Batuan, Sagbayan, & Carmen, it consists of approximately 1,268 haycock hills with heights ranging from 40 to 120 meters.

Formed centuries ago by tidal movements, the hills are considered a National Geologic Treasure. In summertime, the lusg green grass covering the limestone hilss dry up and turn brown, creating the semblance of endless rows of giant chocolate "kisses".'

Thank you Yanissa :)

Yanissa,

Thanks so much for the postcard - it arrived ages ago and I couldn't find it...it was in the scanner! The Chocolate Hills sound delicious, but I think I would prefer them green (not so hot weather).

I would love to visit your lovely country.

Jim
