IL POPOLO DELLE GROTTE

                                                                         I Tau’t Batu sono un esiguo popolo di soli trenta-trentacinque individui che fanno parte di un nucleo di umanitÓ preistorica in estinzione e vivono nell'estremo sud
                                                                dell'isola di Palawan. La loro vita essendo ritmata dalle stagioni,
per sfuggire alla furia del monsone, nel periodo delle piogge lasciano le valli per insediarsi nelle
                                                                grotte tra le montagne ......

                                                                Il trekking  incomincia a RÓtsan: dopo aver reclutato sette portatori inizio a percorrere la prima parte del sentiero che spero mi porti, dopo alcuni giorni, in contatto
                                                               con quello sparuto gruppo di persone. Sono trascorsi tre giorni da quando ho lasciato l’Holiday  Res˛rt ed ho giÓ acquisito, in sintonia con la natura, il ritmo delle
                                                               cose che mi circondano. PoichÚ gli zaini sono troppo pesanti, durante il tragitto arruolo al mio seguito anche un indigeno, DÓron, che si sta rivelando
                                                               un’indispensabile e preziosa guida.

                                                                                                              Durata 33 min. (lingua Italiana) 

CAVE PEOPLE
                                                                                                The Tau’t Bat¨ are a small community of only 30-35 people, who form part of the nucleus of prehistoric humanity, which is heading towards extinction. They live according to the seasons
                                                                              and to escape the fury of the monsoon season deluge, they leave the valleys for the caves in the mountains.....

                                                                     The trek began from RÓtsan: after recruiting seven porters I began to trek on the first part of the path, after which I hope to be, after a few days, in contact with this vanished group of people.
                                                                     Three days have passed since I left the holiday resort and I already feel the vibes of the things around me that are in tune with nature. Then as the backpacks are very heavy, on the way
                                                                              I enlisted the help of a native, DÓron, who is revealing himself to be an indispensable and precious guide........

                                                                     I walk on more through inertia than conviction, when, under the red rays of sunset, in the rocky part of the forest I unexpectedly find myself in front of a triangular opening in the rock face.
                                                                              I discover a large cave where there is some Tau’t Bat¨, one is lighting a fire and another is looking around for snails to eat as a quick snack. I help them in their preparation and spend a good
                                                                             half an hour frozen in concentration, moved, but content. My search has ended well! .....
