SAMAL ISLAND AND DAVAO CITY: Day Four in Mindanao
“It is the journey not the destination that matters.”
After visiting their son in a Davao shanty we then went to Davao Port. In order to go to Samal Island, private cars and public utility vehicles has to avail of the roll-on roll-off (Roro) ferries in Sasa Wharf.
They were all smiling despite the fact that we had walked for almost half an hour on a very muddy road to be able to reach Kapitan Bale’s abode.
Finally! After waiting for Kapitan Bale for almost half an hour at the Cabana ( Bahay Kubo). The quack doctor began treating his patients.
He don’t ask for money but his patients brought coffee, sugar and bread.

While in Kapitan Bale’s place in Samal Island we tried this super cool drink. When in Samal you must try this pure cow’s milk!
You can buy a bottle of fresh cow’s milk for Php35 a bottle. They have different flavors such as:
