Iwahig Penal Colony and Mitra Ranch

After spending time taking croc pics, we went to the Iwahig Penal Colony and visited souvenir shops whose crafts are made by the prisoners. The facility is a long way from a major road, but the green scenery will keep anyone from getting bored. The Mitra Ranch was next on our agenda; it is a vast property of a late Filipino senator, Ramon Mitra, and overlooks the famous Honda Bay. It used to be a horse ranch and a rest house for the former senate president's family. The lady who looks after the house will sometimes allow vistors to view the magnificent tree sculpted and perched inside the living room and some of the family portraits.
