Day 4: February 22, 2011
Waking up to a beautiful weather and the right temperature not to mention the beautiful views would definitely make you fall in love with this city.
My mind was set already to explore the outskirts of the city and maybe pick my own strawberries . Unfortunately, my sister informed me that they’ll be leaving for
after having breakfast. Manila
With all of my plans abandoned I packed up my things and grabbed a cab to the El Cielito Inn. The hotel is just a walking distance to SM City Baguio, I could have walked my way there but my bag was too heavy.
There was an ongoing convention when I got there. I think it was for the doctors of the Department of Health. I went up to their room and was received by her husband. The hotel was fine judging from what I could see but then again I would reserve my comments as I have not really experienced their service.

Anthony couldn’t hold it anymore so we decided to stop by these rows of fruit stands where a carinderia (type of restaurant) is. We ordered fried chicken and I had a cup of rice. I was kind of amazed with the rice as it is not your usual white rice. It was red in color and the taste was much more rich than the usual.

The trip allowed me to have a taste of travelling alone but with safety nets, but I am telling you, I like the feeling of getting lost (okay just the feeling, I just want to make that clear =) ) alone in a city that is not your own. It made me braver and forced me to go out of my shell a bit. It taught me how to interact with people and be more friendly, be more comfortable of how I treat people. I am a people pleaser and I am not comfortable with that, well I guess I shouldn’t.
Travelling makes me a better person, teaches me to take care of my self. I mean, I know how to take care of my self because I have lived by my self for years until recently. But like being out there in the road is different, you would have to be braver and decide quickly when to say “No” and when to beg.

Until the next time I travel, and I have a feeling that it’s going to be a solo one =)
