As we rode our 4x4 vehicle going Mt. Pinatubo under blue skies with scattered fluffy clouds, we passed by not only the lahar-covered lands of Tarlac but surprisingly, a small patch of pastureland where cows can be seen scattered around.
For more than a decade, lahar ruled supreme all over the then part of the rice basket of the Philippines. Hectares and hectares of ricefields, forests, rivers, streams and communities were inundated by lahar during and after the 1991 Mt. Pinatubo eruption. Slowly though, the land is healing.
