“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us,” goes the anonymous quote of Ronel Polinar, although it’s hard to see how he can escape the hot kawa “torture” in the Tibiao, Antique. This photo, courtesy of Ronel Polinar (check his Instagram account, @ron_byaheron, for more photos), harkens back to the dark olden times when cannibals apparently roam the earth. Whereas the prehistoric offerings must be squirming in fear, these two gentlemen of the modern age are definitely smiling with delight inside the kawa (“cauldron”) — with fire underneath. All for fun, of course. So, next time you visit Antique, don’t forget to declare how you prefer to be “cooked” (meaning your “hot bath,” just to be clear). Click the photo to enlarge.
