    I think when this lockdown is over, I'll have a Jollibee meal, just for a sense of normality.

    Net is acting up... More pics next time...

    We went to Tam-Awan Cultural Village later that day...

    @marilyn - depending on the demographic, Jollibee can be a treat (for lower classes) or for a regular meal. When my niece & nephew were little, I'd sometimes take them to Jollibee as a treat - we didn't want them to grow up on French fries & other junk food.

    Baguio was supposed to hold the annual Flower Festival during the last weekend of February. Because of the COVID threat, the local govt postponed it to end of March. Luzon island has been on lockdown since mid-March, so I doubt that the festival will ever happen. Even if the lockdown ends, there's talk of a soft quarantine until June or July. There's also talk of postponing the start of the schoolyear to July or August - depending on the recommendations of the committee. K12 schools usually start in June and end in March/ early April. For the current schoolyear, the kids' grades were computed based on what their grades were already. Most schools just lacked the final exams, since the schoolyear was nearly over.

    Angeles city, as well as other cities, is now deserted. Walking Street (with all the bars and restos) is closed - you can't even go for a stroll. There's a checkpoint and the authorities won't allow you to enter.

    When travel is permitted again, I'd like to go back to Baguio and hike to Mount Ulap, which is 1 hour away from it (it's at Itogon town). I've hiked it before, but the views are scenic and I'd like to hike it with the BF. I also want to visit Batad and Banaue for the rice terraces. I've seen rice terraces in my other hikes, but Banaue's are more spectacular - and they were used in that final scene with Thanos in Marvel movies Infinity Wars.

    Anyway, those are my thoughts at the moment. Pics on next post.
    Nice! Good to have goals and dreams for the future! I used to give some extra money to my friend's father who is principal of the school I told you about in San Jose who bought Jollibee's for all the children that are part of this EAC (Educate A Child) program I am part of. They were super excited to get it as it was a huge treat for them.

    This is the website if you are at all interested or anyone else for that matter in sponsoring a child to attend school in the future. I personally know that all the money goes directly to the child's education and transportation to school.

    Your previous landlord didn't see any value in improving the lot of the natives. Too busy raping the countries ASSets.
