I brought the Camiguin Circumferential Highway to its knees. From Benoni Port to Catarman to Mambajao and back, clockwise.

It takes twenty-four hours to circumnavigate the island by foot, give or take a few.

Camiguingnons take this “round” every Semana Santa as a solemn sacrifice or as sacred pact called panaad.

They say Camiguin is crime free. What keeps local cops busy are domestic disputes.

Expats love Camiguin for what it does not have: garbage, crime, traffic jams. The Camiguin Circumferential Road is a lonely highway.

I love Camiguin for what it holds: laid-back life, friendly folks, old houses, and water. Lots of water. Hot spring, cold spring, soda spring.

The island is ever-flowing.
