Big Sur represent for the sight of majestic greatness of wild California. It is located along Scenic Highway One that is flanked on one side by Santa Lucia Mountains and on other by rocky Pacific Coast. I did not come here before but I was impressed by its nature, animals, plants, and weather since I watched “Big Sur – Wild California” last Wednesday.
Big Sur’s weather plays an important role which decides all livings here. The best weather is often during springs and falls. Winters are mild and rainy days are interspersed with period of bright sunshine. The summer mornings are cool due to coastal fog but it usually lifts by early afternoons. You will see two opposite weather in a day. A damp, foggy morning can be followed by a warm afternoon. The temperatures are more extreme in the interior valleys of the Wilderness Area; the days are hot and the nights chilly. The hot day can cause a fire that destroys all things and after that new life begins.
Sea otters are famous animal in Big Sur. They can be found throughout Big Sur. You can see otters playing in the rocky beach or see them swimming in and around the kelp forests. They are so innocent and cute when enjoy their meal. Otters lay on their back and munch their food happily. Their favorite food is abalone. The otter has increased its numbers to more than 2,000 today. In the past, otters seem to be wiped out by covetous traders who desire their rich pelt. Besides, otters are threatened by old spills and illegal killing.
Our class plan to visit Big Sur next Saturday. We just have one day for the trip so McWay Waterfall Trail and Ewoldsen Trail.

...Related Studies Rolando Tolentino (2012), The Virgin of Peñafrancia and South Border claimed that Translacion is a spectacle where in people from the Bicol region led by the church and the government and encouraged further by the media participate with the goal of the formation of a regional unity. In this activity, the image of the Blessed Virgin is carried on their shoulders by a congregation of sunburned and barefooted males known as voyadores from the Basilica to the Naga Cathedral. It is being practiced that those who shall carry the Virgin wear a different color than the other devotees joining the procession. It is also a belief that a woman should not go near the pagoda (where the Virgin stays as it is being carried). In other words, women are not allowed to participate in carrying the image. Also, there is such a belief by the Bicolanos that the presence of a woman near the pagoda indicates a disaster or an accident. The color coding process during the procession is but a screaming evidence of social divisions. Those who are carrying the Virgin on their shoulders wear a different color from the others to show that they are the lucky ones entitled to the privilege of holding the sacred image which many other devotees do not have the benefit to even touch. It also exhibits the idea of a patriarchal society where males dominate the crowd. Moreover, zooming in our gaze to the pagoda only, we already see a clear division. Though males were those privileged to touch and......

History of Bicol Literature

... the Pacific Ocean I the east, Lamon Bay in the north, and Sibugan Sea and Quezon province in the west. HISTORY The Bicol region was known as Ibalon, variously interpreted to derive form ibalio, "to bring to the other side"; ibalon, "people from the other side" or "people who are hospitable and give visitors gifts to bring home"; or as a  corruption of Gibal-ong, a sitio of Magallanes, Sorsogon where the Spaniards first landed in 1567.  The Bico River was first mentioned in Spanish Documents in 1572.  The region was also called "Los Camarines" after the huts found by the Spaniards in Camalig,  Albay.  No prehistoric animal fossils have been discovered in Bicol and the peopling of the region remains obscure.  The Aeta from Camarines Sur to Sorsogon strongly suggest that aborigines lived there long ago, but earliest evidence is of middle to late Neolithic life.   A barangay (village) system was in existence by 1569.  Records show no sign of Islamic rule nor any authority surpassing the datu (chieftain).  Precolonial leadership was based on strength, courage, and intelligence.  The native seemed apolitical.  Thus the datu's influence mattered most during crises like wars.  Otherwise, early Bicol society remained family centered, and the leader was the head of the family. The Bicol were described by some Spanish chroniclers as fierce warriors.  Thus their history comprises many battles against foreign...

...other student resident- boarders. His entire sojourn as a student- tenant is an interesting evocation of his life off- campus life and vivifies one other side of his transformation as a person. It is as much an essential part of his growth no less than the vistas of new knowledge he meets inside the classroom. Here, against the backdrop of a transition home- away- from- home, he encounters new human relationships, cultivates new friends and acquaintances, learns life’s many a struggle and sacrifice. His passage as a form dweller, in time, either makes him the better for it or none better. Past and present observations of student boarders in the city of Naga indicate that a significant majority come from distant towns of Camarines Sur and from even other provinces outside the Bicol region. Most of them seek board and lodging in which they pay a monthly rate, although quite a number pay for room or for bed space only without provisions for meals. City boarding-houses, not surprisingly, are located near school campuses. Thus, student- boarders often choose boarding places closer to their schools. The reason is economic; school short distance from boarding houses save time and transportation fare. Any savings are thus added values to student boarders who cannot afford the higher cost of the few, often elitist, student dormitories in the city. There is paucity of information concerning conditions of boarding houses in this city, particularly private homes catering......

...Bicolano The Bicolano language is the dialect of the people of Region six.   The region’s six provinces have varying numbers of municipalities, cities and towns. Camarines Sur has the most numerous towns and barrios. There are three cities namely, Naga and Iriga (in Camarines Sur) and Legaspi (in Albay). Airplanes, trains and buses make transportation in the region easy. Albay’s strategic location makes it a gateway for the neighboring regions of Samar-Leyte and the Tagalog provinces. Naga City serves as the center of communication with several commercial radio receivers and government-owned and operated radio networks. The original settlers of Bicol were said to be hybridized by the Tagalog (who migrated to Camarines Norte and Camarines Sur) and the Visayans (who moved to Masbate and Sorsogon). These migrations plus the isolation of certain areas led to the formation of diverse dialects. The Bicol language is basically Malayo-Polynesian with adaptations of some Arabic, Indian, Chinese, and Spanish words. An agglutinative language, it has a simple structure and an inflection that retains the meaning of the word. The isolated people of Libon speak another dialect which combines the dialects in the Rinconada district of Camarines Sur, from Bato to Baao. Another dialect is spoken in southern Catanduanes. Some parts of Masbate and Sorsogon fall linguistically between Bicol and Cebuano. Tagalog with a distinct Bicol accent is spoken in Camarines Norte. The words listed below......
