Week 46.1 - Baguio City!


Is there anything more to be said?

I've been longing to come here since I was a kid but for some unknown reason the trips always seem to get cancelled (much to my frustration). I (finally) managed to step on the city's soil a few weeks ago (thanks to the Girlfriend's superhuman efforts). And I was fucking elated, I tell ya!

We stayed there for around four days and I must say that it's very easy to fall in love with the city - to the point when I scoffed at Manila upon our return. I'm sorry Dumaguete, but you've fallen off the top spot for my Favorite Cities list.

As a quick note, we stayed at Chalet Baguio. It was quite expensive though, and we should have thought of staying at a transient house instead - especially since we only went in there to bathe, sleep and have breakfast. Oh well, lessons learned.

Lastly, I'm splitting Baguio into two posts - one for the sights and sounds (well, just sights) of the city and another for BenCab.

As always, photos, photos and lots of photos after the cut. Click and enjoy!
