Tossed on to the Filipino chopsuey food culture, the salad bowl known as La Trinidad is a trace of American legacy in Benguet. Surviving the importation of fresh greens, the La Trinidad Vegetable Trading Post remains an interesting destination in the face of gridlock.
We passed through inspiring early morning sunshine over the Quirino Bridge in Santa, Ilocos Sur, on our way to Baguio. What a spectacular view of beautiful Ilocos in all its simplicity! A case of less is more.
Saw this beauty in good running condition on the road. We continued the vintage nostalgia over at the “Vintage Baguio” photo exhibit in the Maryknoll Ecological Sanctuary along Sto. Tomas Road. Cameras were not allowed. The photos date back during the American occupation. A virtual American town with horse-drawn wagons and log cabins. Aerial photos of the Kennon Road, built by Col. Lyman Walter Vere Kennon of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and photos of Burnham Park and buildings in the elegant past were among the exhibit’s cache of photos.
The TecnoHub at the Camp John Hay is a nice area with nice places to eat, stroll and relax. We picked a Quicksilver trucker hat with sunset palm tree silhouettes for Eugene at R.O.X.
For the adrenaline junkies, there’s a Tree Top Adventure nearby where you can fly a la Superman looking down onto pine forests or fall in the head down position.
Another dinner at Cafe by the Ruins.
Sunset from Naguillan Rd. on our way home.
