The Aetas are generally short, dark-skinned, and kinky-haired people. Many of the people I saw here were not.

These children are playing a Filipino version of billiards, called “taco” (pool cue in spanish, by the way). Flat plastic disks are used instead of pool balls. To make the disks slide better, they powder the board. The square table top revolves on a central axis and can be rotated without the player displacing himself around it.
