Taking a visit

Henry, an American friend visited the Philippines for the second time. He’s my sister-in-law’s special friend. It’s also his first time to live in a Pinoy friend’s house since he was billed in a hotel the first time he went to the country.
We took him to some scenic spots like Taal Lake, Tagaytay and even Baguio in time for the Panagbenga Festival. He was amazed to see the different colorful flowers in the parade. Aside from the fiesta activity, he noticed the big development in the city of Baguio. He noticed how the city progressed commercially due to establishments that had risen in the place such as the malls, the Ukay-Ukay or the tiangge selling second hand goods and even online casino that operates in the poblacion.
He remembered his first trip in the place and vividly describes Baguio as a beautiful vacation spot because of the quiet community and cold weather.
Henry opt to stay in Baguio for a week so we left him and my sister because they will still travel to Mt. Province to see the beautiful Banaue Rice Terraces and then go straight to Sagada for more nature tripping.
