This is the welcome sign that banters the tired body from the long haul of road travel implying the last leg of the journey up the mountains of the Cordilleras. It hails travelers a warning to be more alert at the approaching steep climb through the infamous Kennon Road zigzag.
After an hour of ascent, one sees the zigzag view from this point hinting an accomplished driving feat!
The Camp John Hay Manor is our favorite Baguio address that spells H-E-A-V-E-N. We are always pampered with much lavishness that going home becomes a dreaded reality.
In the years that we have visited the haven in the skies, we have gone to most of the interesting sights to see. On our way to a food locale, an old tribal lady caught our eye and we just had to get down the car to take her photograph. We were amazed that she asked us to pay her $.50 (Php20) for the portrait. In frustration, we yielded to her demand because she was indeed an interesting subject. Although I hope that this practice does not get passed on to her descendants.
The Baguio Cathedral is one recognized landmark in the central area of the city. That one glorious morning when we were out early to take photos, I was blessed with azure skies and beautiful lighting; thus, a delightful capture was such a gift.
