When I was a child growing up, climbing trees has always been fun for me.
I have reached and enjoyed the branches and leaves of Bayabas tree, Avocado tree, Sinegwelas tree, Duhat tree, Kamias tree, Sampaloc tree, Kaymito tree, short Coconut tree (yes…the short one only), Indian Mango tree, Santol tree, Chico tree, Atis tree, Guyabano tree, Banaba tree, and even the fragile Papaya tree. Trees were part of my life.
In our days, climbing trees was the most significant tangible proof that a kid like me was healthy and strong. There were no computers, no smart phones, no handheld cameras, no PlayStation, no Apple IPhone, no Samsung Galaxy, no handheld gadgets, no Facebook, no Twitter, no Youtube, etc, that most children enjoy today- indoor. We were always outdoor.
