|at the Lourdes Grotto in Baguio|
We had already checked out of the hotel, bought our ticket to the 3:00 PM bus bound to Caloocan, ate our lunch, yet we still had to go to Lourdes Grotto. It was already past 1:00 PM then, but the very insistent and persistent me just couldn't allow us to go home without heading there.
Lourdes Grotto was on the other side, not covered by the route of the Plaza-Mines View Park jeep, but by the jeep going to Dominican. We did not bother with the jeep since we were at a lack of time, and took a cab instead.
Just like what we experienced at Wright Park and Burnham Park, the moment we stepped out of the cab, vendors approached us. This time, they were selling candles, but we didn't intend to light up candles so we just ignored them. Noteworthy though was the fact that there were also vendors upstairs, selling those candles at a much lower price.
|So, this is the stairs.|
|my own grotto :D|
Because I've been consistently lucky in pulling off these "nick of time" items in the itinerary, we were able to survive. And that, folks, ends our what-seemed-so-long-yet-it-was-just-overnight trip to Baguio. On the next part of this series, brace yourselves for photos of a 3-year old girl unearthed from only I know where, and the itinerary will be shared on the last part. :)
