Oh, what a beauty to be surrounded by nature.

I love Baguio. I have lived in baguio when I was in college. I went to Saint Louis University, that was atleast ten years ago. Baguio was them more simple, no malls, not as crowded as now. I remember walking to school from Bonifacio Street to Harrison Road, passing through the market. The Center mall wasn't there at that time. It was an empty lot and we can see the Dangwa bus station from the street. I would walk and window shop on my way home to and from school. The weather was cool so it felt great to walk. We lived in QM at that time.

Now after so many years, so much has changed. Bigger buildings have been put up. It seems more commercialized now than before. More people, the sidewalks seems narrower since one cannot get through without snaking through a crowd. But I still love this city. There's this atmosphere, a very gentle aura I get from people when I am in Baguio. People seems to be more gentle and kind or maybe I can relate to them better since I have lived here. Could be that I can understand the people here better, language and culture wise. It could also because of fond memories I have living in this great city.Eitherway, I am always happy to be back in Baguio.

I love the cool weather too. Could be a factor why I feel great when I am in Baguio. Of course when I am down here in Nueva Vizcaya, the weather is hot and humid. Does not allow one to be in a comfort zone. When the weather is hot, we tend to get irritated and get upset very easily. It could just be me.
