boatride to the Mt. Taal
We arrived in Manila around midnight and didnt manage to the meet up so we went sleep. after 3 hours we had to wake up and we met Winnie and Aurelie at the hostel and took cab to Makati, some McDo there. Our driver couldnt find it at first but then he made it. There were already the Pinoy gang with Matt waiting. (I bet they did eat some almost-food at the McPoison:PPPP ).
Then ppl kept coming and the only one missing was Mike - how come i have to wait always for pinoys? Is it a national sport or something like that? hahahaha
Anyways Mike arrived late and so we could finally head towards Tagaytay, or somewhere close to that town.

On the ride JeAr was trying to be a jerk (succesful i have to admit) hahaha but i didnt mind. He - as always - wanted to be at least for few minutes the 'middle' of the 'action' and have our attention. What the hell - we could aford it for him, such a nice gift of old ppl to the kid:) (ok, that's it Jay, peace bro!) ahhaha. yu have to forgive this to an old man, right?
It was pretty nice talking, goofing and being jerk there on the van ride, until we got the nice view over the lake and crater.
Short break for taking pics and back to the van. After few minutes we arrived to the yacht club. Waited there for a while and finally we got on the boats and rode to the island, where the Mt. Taal was (is the name correct actually?).
The next part of the trip was the hike to the crater. Man, that was hot! As we arrived there we were all like "OMG, is this awesome place!"
Pics, pics and nothing but pics.
so close to the top!
There was visible this smoke coming out of the crater - which makes us believe the monster is still just sleeping, due to wake up again in some unpredictable future. Then i relized, i lost my glases! Oh no! I'm blind now! Well, not really, but it was just a disaster to having lost them. I could still see but when there was something like far view i dint enjoyed it to the full. That was the first disater that day (second when we count the McPoison visit as well). After taking around 7098435 pics we started going back to the boat. On the way down, i hit my toe against the rock and Philippines was spayed with my holy blood for the first time (and this is just the first day in Pinoy-land!). Fortunatelly JeAr had some alkohol (i don't even want to know how come he had that!) so i could wash the toe and Girls helped me with the toe to keep it clean (sorry but i dont know the words in effinglish to tell u guys correctly what we made there) ;) Finally we arrived to the boat and went up to the town, to have coffe and food. The lunch over there was soo good! And the view from the resto terrace was magnifique also, over the lake and crater! Cool place for lunch.
Next stop... Pagsanjan and the Falls.
