It was the afternoon after our tricycle tour around Brooke’s Point in the province of Palawan. From Brooke’s Point we rode a RORO Bus to Narra (165 Pesos/person). What usually took less than 2 hours became 3 hours on the road due to a technical problem. It was a rather boring wait, but at least we already started our journey to Narra.
We arrived around 5:30 PM at Narra and since it was slowly getting dark we rode a tricycle and asked to be taken to a very very affordable lodging. On the way to the center of town, we asked the tricycle driver on how we could get to Rasa Island where the Katala or Philippine Cockatoo, that is endemic to our country. He said that we need to ask in Panacan Port on how to get there.
Seeing that the light is slowly fading and each passing moment means lesser people to ask in the Panacan Port, we quickly instructed our tricycle driver to bring us to Panacan Port. It was a bit far from where we were and when we reached Panacan Port it was around 5:53 PM.
We quickly searched for a local and asked on how we could get to Rasa Island and he told us that for us to get to the island, we should seek permission with Kuya Fred Diaz. Back to the road to find the house of Kuya Fred. When we found him, he told us to leave immediately to go to a specific place to see the Katalas and go back to him after as time is running out.
