Sunday (December 14, 2014), post wedding
my family’s Day 3 at picturesque Batanes.
Still, King Sun was shy to come out.
Wind, drizzles, fog and cold breeze became “sticky”
to the entirety of our Southern Island tour.
Can’t decide otherwise. Make do of the weather.
Pull out your reading and/or magnifying glasses.
Behold few of the many BATANES’ wonders:View from our room’s veranda.
“Marlboro Country” as termed by visitors.
Sprawling through mountains pasteurlands beside the sea
for horses and bovine.
The oldest (1887) vernacular (stone) house in the island.
Basco, Batanes’ counterpart for Mall Of Asia with heaven and earth differences:
- No guards
- No sales staff
- No cashier
- Serve yourself or get what you wish to buy
- Pay exact amount. Drop unto box.
- You have change…who will, on earth, hand back the change to you?
- Just donate it.
- No “martilyo gang”
- The name tells it all…ill mannered visitors…STAY OUT.
- NO “freeby” or “badge” for…you know who they are.
Senior moment 1.
Senior Moment 2.
(can readers from or had been to this wonderful island please help should you have noted?).
(North, South or SABTANG Island Tour).
Regrets are…when you’ve got great time, resources and full of energetic surprises,
but ended up in a mediocre choice of site…you’ll surely remember this old guy.
