    The guesthouse had a husky and several pups - all very friendly.

Now, they probably went home to the provinces prior to the lockdown. I'm not keen to return to Angeles, unless it's to shop in the Korean marts or eat K-food.
    When I was there, some of the pubs had bars on the windows and the street was a total mess of bricks and stones. I couldn't wait to leave.

    I got confused. That was in Manila.

    What a massive letdown that is.

    @cyrille - when (what year) did you go there? When I went in 2016, they had cleaned the area up a bit (removed some trees and bushes). Now that area is part of the Echo Valley trail - I didn't go there this year, but did it in 2016.

    These vloggers visited last year and I saw from their vids that they have closed that area off - the one with the coffins.

    Warning: it's not my vid, it's from a UK couple. But you guys will get the general idea of the place.

    @toot - that's Jollibee spaghetti, for Filipino tastes only. You'll either be very Jolly or very barfy when you eat it.

    @hal - yes, Angeles walking street was kinda depressing. Not a place that I'd miss. But it was my first time to see it, so it was enlightening.

    Edit: my net is acting up. After Sagada, we went back to Baguio & spent a couple of days there. Went to the Tam-Awan Cultural Village, Burnham Park, etc. More pics next time...

    That pic was taken on April 14, 2005 katie.

    The place was deserted and there were some major roadworks going on that blocked off half the (already very small) place.

    I was only there a couple of nights.

    An old mate of mine that I backpacked Sth America with back in 1989 did a circuit of the northern Phillipines- Sagad, Banaue, Baler etc. He was blown away actually, loved it. But he did like things rather rustic- Baguio wasn't much his scene, too bourgeois.

    Jollibee's..

    Great trip report, happy times, Katie.

    Baguio City is a place I'd like to visit sometime. I have a dear friend that is very special to me that works in Baguio. I have heard that he is now working there and left San Jose city where he went to school. We wrote letters back and forth for years when he was a student, but I have lost track of him over time, sadly.
