... sieste, Alvin, un gars de la place, nous a amenés visiter les rizières sur son tuktuk. En allant visiter de vieilles maisons traditionnelle,on a été pris dans un orage qui n'en finissait pas de finir. On est donc revenus tout mouillés. La grande différence, c'est qu'ici l'air est pur et SURTOUT que les gens sont extrêmement gentils. On ne sent pas qu'ils courent après notre argent mais sont intéressés ...

Day 5: September 3, 2014
Tez and I had this extra day in Banaue since our flight was departing after the one of Fede and Maia. Hence, we decided to have an administrative day and do all kinds of internet stuff as we hadnīt been online for a while.
