.... April 5th is the start of "Holy Week" in the Philippines, otherwise known as Easter. It is also the busiest week of the year on Malapascua Island, home of the famous thresher sharks, when shark lovers descend en masse on the tiny island to get up close and personal with this normally elusive shark.
