VIRAC CATANDUANES April 06

Photos during our visit to scenic Virac, Catanduanes--hometown of Christine's Lola. The local Army Camp is named after Christine's grandfather, Lieutenant Francisco Camacho, a Philippine Medal of Honor (Valor) recipient during the Magsaysay era.
*Virac, the capital of the island province of Catanduanes, started its primitive annals in pre-Spanish times when tribal chieftain Lumibao, scion of Datu Dumaguil who came to the Philippines with the 13 Malay datus, and his wife Milbigan settled near Vidak spring and founded the first civilized settlement with a score of servant followers and their wives. Some say Virac is a derivation of the word “Vidac” while others claim it is a contraction of the Spanish version of the word burac, meaning flower.
