Amazing rice terraces but awful food!

... br> After lunch we played card games with the family, their son Dinixi (10)( now I am not sure how you spell his name- sorry) and daughter Alex(6) were so cute and such lovely kids.

They headed off for shopping and we walked around the village, it didn't take long as it's not a huge place but it is very pretty. We passed 2 elderly local women who smiled, said hello and giggled at Martin. They were about 3 feet tall so he must have looked like a giant!

... to the first lookout over the Rice Terraces and then to the other lookout right at the very top of the terraces. They were so amazing, so nice and green looking. Then we traveled an hour on a ****** road to Bapao to see some more Rice Terraces where we walked for an hour through them to get to the Hot springs. It was a nice mostly flat walk which is all we could ...

Seeking Silence (and finding it)

... establishment by Nina, his Filipina wife, and their team of young, enthusiastic and attentive staff. Blending into the foliage, one barely notices these diminutive palm leaf-thatched huts perched atop a ridge high in the stepped mountains. I am greatly appreciative of this fact, since the landscape is usually dotted with utilitarian cinder block and sheet metal structures.

We are assigned Hut No.4, a squat, square ...

... ruined because of the drought.

As a result, the terraces were a top priority for this go around. Road transport is really the only option for getting to the north of Luzon and that used to be a real chore but Gloria Arroyo, a recent Philippino president, was somewhat committed to infrastructure improvements (vs robbing the country blind like so many others). There's also an approaching election in the Philippines which has accelerated the building programs ...

The rice terraces of Batad

... along the way, we talked about family, Xmas, new year and he mentioned that in the Philippines, there is no such thing as divorce! So he finds it amazing that couples last in Western cultures when divorce is so easy. In the Philippines, once you are married, you are stuck with her/him! It wasn't long before I was talking between deep breaths!

Ironically, this was the first day in a very long ...

    Stayed here two nights. Would not recommend for backpackers as there are a couple other places in town that are cheaper and nicer. This is more of a resort with a couple of backpacker rooms, but the prices for food, tour and drinks are out of my budget. Comes with a free breakfast though. Nice.
