Remarks :Soon after I took these pictures we got kidnapped by the Islamic terrorist group known as Abu Sayaf. I managed to escape on 5th December 2014. I would like to appeal to everybody to avoid the whole Sulu area in the southern Philippines. It is too dangerous to visit that archipelago. My friend Ewold is still in the hands of the terrorists. The situation is getting worse due to modern communication systems (mobile phones, speedboats, etc). - Lorenzo Vinciguerra, 13th December 2014
