Connecting Ilocanos through tourism

I am honored and thankful to Miss April Chiang Rafales, who asked me to bring her to the newsworthy locales up in my list. The pretty and smart April is a new reporter of ABS-CBN TV Patrol Ilocos, a highly rated local news program. Special thanks also to Mr. Randy Menor and the TV Patrol Ilocos staff, especially to efficient cameraman Tim and driver Mulo. I had a fine day with them in the great outdoors of Burgos last Saturday. Last but not the least, I have to thank, again, the hospitable leader of Burgos in the person of Mayor Cris Garcia, who I think is now a converted adrenaline junkie. Dry fit clothing become him.

Ilocos was experiencing an inclement weather condition when I thought summer just started — might be a sign of global warming. Nonetheless, the gusty winds did not intimidate us from getting our game plan actualized. Horseback riding in Palpalokada, check, spelunking in one of the 150+ caves around Burgos, check,  and we had time left to visit the local salt-making community and Fish Sanctuary — all on a hurried day!

So as not to preempt the Burgos adventure on television, I’ll post photos next time.
