Before I Hit The Twig: Hang A Hammock!

Hammock of Baguio City

One of the tasks featured in the book "2001 Things To Do Before You Die" is hanging a hammock in the living room. I haven't actually hanged a hammock in my living room (solely because of lack of space for it!), but I love hammocks and have one hanging in the front yard of my house. 

 Hammock of Bicol
It normally consists of one or more cloth panels, or a woven network of twine or thin rope stretched with ropes between two firm points such as trees or posts. 
 Hammock of Quezon Province
Hammocks were developed by native inhabitants of tropical regions like the Philippines for sleeping. 
Hammock of Bohol

There are currently a wide variety of hammocks available and popular in the Philippines usually for relaxation and used as a lightweight bed on camping trips.
Hammock of Boracay
Hammocks here are also use as seating, as beds, or as sleep-swings for infants.
