French Connection

Pardon my French, Mr. Angelo Lacson, Gerry Ele, and Geronio Ulayao are leaving tomorrow with 60 students for the Travel and Tourism Paris Tour. I think they will be gone for 10 days.

It was so wonderfully cold! I sipped a fresh strawberry daquiri and was just so glad to be there.

We caught the last weekend of the Panangbenga Flower Festival….Session road was closed during the festivities to traffic and was converted into a giant tiange (flee market)! I was delighted to visit the over 200 stalls that was organized by the Hotel and Restaurant Association of Baguio (HRAB)…From stall to stall I was food tripping on Baguio longanissa (native sausage), Benguet coffee, bagnet, strawberries, Sagada oranges,Tantamco’s ube
