Every Saturday morning at 6am I catch the bus to Bontoc. After a bumpy two hour ride, I coach swimming at the closest public pool to my house in Kin-iway. With about 40 students and only myself as the instructor, I usually end up staying until 3pm. We eat lunch family style with a big spread of food on the banana leaf covered tables. The students are great, and so eager to learn. I have no doubt that they will be fierce competitors in this year's provincial meet! The beautiful mountains surround the pool which make for great scenery. The sun is hot though, so SPF 30 is a must.-Melanie West Goes...Swimming.
