I live and work in Philippine Tarsier Foundation which is basically placed in the jungle.
Just behind the main building of the foundation where all the volunteers stay, there is a sanctuary where our precious tarsiers live. We are in a close touch with jungle and everything which lives there. It basically means that we share our accommodation with all the insects, lizards, snakes and creatures which feel invited to our building ;p
I’m here three months and I can already recognize most of the noises coming from the jungle, especially during the night time when all the animals are easily hearable by us – a real jungle music! I really enjoy living close to the nature and wildlife… To be honest, every time I come back to the jungle from the city I feel like home! 😉
The closest civilization is 15 km far from our foundation, it’s a quite a big city called Tagbilaran. Once per 2-3 days we go there by jeepney or hitch-hiking to use Internet and buy some food in a supermarket or street market.
Living in the jungle has its advantages, as long as you enjoy nature, wildlife and you don’t mind to get really dirty;p
