Lewis to describe this photo of a boy who was pulling a horse loaded with sacks of charcoal when I visited Purok Upper Alabel last week. Charcoal-making has become one the popular source of income by the locals in the area despite the government’s warnings that this might lead to serious ecological problems in the future and, probably, catastrophic disasters later on.
