I am one of the many who loves to go to cooler places every chance that I get. Being born and raised in the Visayas, we do not have much of such places where the temp is below 20˚C. Sometimes I consider my place as having only one season: Sizzling Summer.
Sometimes my mind drifts off to places in the Cordilleras. Baguio may just be a perfect option to escape the summer sting, but the place is just too crowded and so much covered with urban development and commercialism.
Instead I pushed my mind to wander beyond the city of pines and imagine a cool summer place deep into the arms of the Cordilleras. And Sagada just popped into mind.
