Beating a path to Boljoon

Visitors to Cebu usually troop to the cities or the tried-and-tested spots on the island of Mactan. They don’t know what they’re missing. You don’t have to go where guide books and travel shows tell you to.

Many people forget that travel is partly an adventure—and you can’t really call yourself “adventurous” if you don’t at least make an attempt to go off the proverbial beaten path. There lies the difference between a tourist and a traveler. Not that you can’t be both.

For Glenn Aguilar, its not the bike that matters.

Using a borrowed motorbike, Aguilar flaunted the skills that netted him 11 national titles as he ruled the 14th leg of the MS Motosuit Motocross Series dubbed the 1st Hon. Zigfed Povadora Duterte Motocross Challenge held last Saturday in barangay Caduawan, Tabogon town, northern Cebu.

Aguilar, who had to borrow Siegfred Ornopia’s bike, bagged the expert crown, spoiling the return of Irwin Uypitching of Rusi Rusco Team, who settled for first runner-up. Paolo Inoc settled for second runner-up.

The Gold Chain from Boljoon

On March 25, 2009, one of the most important finds in Philippine archaeology was made in Boljoon, Cebu, when a 1.1-meter necklace was uncovered from one of the burials that were excavated there. The necklace, worn on a probable female burial coded as Burial 43.

Jose G. Santiago and Dante Posadas (of the National Museum) and I began the brushing the neckline of the burial to search for artifacts that day. We were not disappointed. For a long gold loop-in-loop chain (reportedly called “inahas” or snake-like by 16th century natives according to Spanish missionaries) glinted like it was made only yesterday.
