Franz gave me a call last wednesday night, asking me if i would want to come to baguio during the weekend. i have never been to baguio, and i already missed a lot of opportunities to do so. So without any hesitation, i said yes.
We left for Baguio the night before the 1st of October, the bus trip lasted for 6 hours approximately, and we arrived at Baguio during the dawn of the 1st. the first impression that i got was the eerie feeling and the chill down the spine kind due to the excessive fog and low temperature. Baguio is a lot quieter as compared to manila, the scenery is similar to those i’ve seen in rural america in the movies, or the provincial korea in those tv dramas.
As our cab drove to our hotel, i noticed the beauty of the architectural designs of the houses we passed by. the tall trees embraced by the mist also caught my attention. this exceeded my expectations of the place, and at that precise moment, i was excited to go around the city as soon as the sun comes out.
the Hotel we stayed on was a top a hill, or maybe a mountain. The mist was thicker there, and was moving with the flow of the breeze. the scene kinda reminded me of Silent Hill, a game i played in the playstation way back in college. seeing all these from the balcony of the hotel room, the feeling sunk in. I braved the mist! and at last, i am in Baguio!
