Familiar word/place? Haha, not me too! Locals pronounce that as “ke-ree-kee-te”. It’s an island that belongs to the town of Almagro, (Western) Samar. This island actually has 2 barangays (Kerikite and Magsaysay) but my destination was only Kerikite. Yep, the red thing you see on these map images.

As they did in Sto. Nino, except for the boatmen, all of my companions proceeded to the boondocks – that included Maning the barangay captain.

And this is where I saw many things interesting…
