Bud Tumangtangis (Mt. Tumangtangis) welcomes us to Jolo nearing daybreak. The stars are out–they stand guard as our little commercial vessel sails the Sulu sea. Boat rides here are stories in themselves (right #TropangSulu?) but before we enchant you with our tales from the high seas, why not gaze at the island instead? –Here mysticism reigns supreme and I swear–something in my gut always comes alive once we make it to the port.
