Apocalypse A.K.A. Sinulog

Getting drunk and crazy? Nope, we did neither of those.

It's a thing for people to go crazy during the annual Sinulog festival in Cebu. It's like having a full moon. I even saw a "werewolf" (see proof below).

For the most part, I walked around the city snapping random interesting things. I mean, this was probably the only time I could do that without fear of getting robbed.

Don't pee in public

So you won't have to pee in the sidewalk. Please don't. Also, stop spitting in public. It's gross.

For a brief second, I experienced a spiritual shift.

When it was dark, we began our hike to Ayala. Short distance, but the crowd was definitely a challenge. I think I might've stepped on a few humans, but I'm not 100% sure.

We ended our night with a spectacular fireworks display. It's been a while since I've experienced something like it. It was breathtaking!
