Info about projection
Over 2,000 years ago, the Ifugao mountain people began building a unique natural landscape: the world-famous rice terraces in the Philippine Cordilleras. However, working up high in the fields is arduous and brings little in the way of financial rewards. Many of the younger Ifugao no longer wish to pursue this backbreaking way of life, preferring to leave the villages for tourism jobs in neighboring towns.
