they live in simple, humble shelters in coastal areas
and go out to the streets
to beg for money and food.
They are mostly uneducated and illiterate
and begging seems to be the only way to earn.
Some of them go from house to house
and do some singing and dancing
so people can give them something.
But even with their humble status in today's society,
people will still be amazed
at what one Badjao man can do.
He can swim underwater at least 20 meters down below
and walk on the ocean floor hunting for fish
while holding his breath up to 5 minutes.
This is impossible for all of us,
but this is just a common thing for him.
It's possible that there may be more Badjao people
who can swim underwater for 5 minutes or even longer.
