City of blooms! Summer capital of the Philippines! whatever you may call it..it's the place I've always wanted to come back to.. the mountains, its landscape, her flowers, the wind, its people. It's been a long time since my last visit to Baguio, 12 years ago..but still the memories, all that is in Baguio lingers. A happy family back then, it seems. I have 2 kids then and we went boating in the man-made lagoon in Burnham Park, took our walk up the 100 stairs, took picture with the Mines View Park behind us and The Mansion. Sweet memories..we even experienced a tremor at 2am. Earthquake! which at first I thought there was a monster opening the door since our room is connected to the other moving through a common bathroom.
Travelling 6 hours from Manila.. always excited to get there.. remembering my first visit when I was in college for a leadership seminar sponsored by one of our student society I was a member of. Six months after the July 16, 1990 earthquake when Baguio, one that was badly hit at that time.. though we could still see the ruins, its natural beauty can still be seen despite the tragedy. The warmth of the native people living there, the rich culture, would also make you back and even wanted to live there. I think this is the place where I can really be one with nature, be what I am, be with other God's creation, It's beautiful place..being tired of the suburbs' polluted air, the noise.. it's a one place that will bring you to your senses. Though I know there are far better place than Baguio, but still, her flowers leave its color into my eyes.
One day, two days or even three days are not enough to see the whe,b b. usplendor of Baguio..and maybe after all these tedious days, I would go back and experience once again the different colors and blooms of Baguio.
