Dreaming of Baguio

Recently, I have been working from home. Because the summer heat has intensified lately, I am finding it hard to concentrate. All I can think about is going back to the beach (The four days I had in Boracay was not enough. Wah, I want to join T. Joyce, T. Je, and the rest of the Palawan-bound gang!) or going to Baguio where Nanay spent her birthday last year.

Considered the summer capital of the Philippines, Baguio is known for its mild climate. Today when Metro Manila has a temperature range of 24 to 35 degrees Celsius, Baguio City has a temperature range of 17 to 26 degrees Celsius! That is as cool as the office where I used to work could get when the airconditioner is at its most  efficient.

Aside from the low temperature, Baguio City has a lot to offer those afflicted with wanderlust. It never seems to run out of places to walk around in, cafes to sit in, and ukay-ukay shops.

Baguio City is also celebrating its centennial this year, so visitors can expect some special activities or events.

By the way, Man, enjoy Baguio and the workshop.

SJ, if you are reading this post, I also had you in mind while writing this 🙂
