Mt. Pinatubo Trek

It felt like being in a different planet.

It felt like being in a different planet.

Coming from Clark, we took an expensive tricycle ride to the bus station. It was I think 3 or 4 in the morning and we were still a bit groggy from lack of sleep. The bus station was a big dilemma. We didn't know which bus to take so we could meet with our tour guide in some town that we were not familiar with. Anyway, we took our chances and rode a bus that seemed to be going to the town.

And thankfully, we were able to find the place (though a little late). Another van ride was to take place but at least now we were in the hands of the tour guide.

Our 4x4 ride to the trek area.

The town looks busy at this time of day.

I was completely blown away by the landscape.

Local kids.

After taking this photo, she gave out a small laugh probably already used to people taking pictures of her. She did her own pose which I assume she learned from previous photographers or she is clearly a natural at this.

Some kids were running towards the jeeps.

Some new friends we met there.

Jake the dog!

We also encountered some men in uniform. They were I think feeding the kids in the area.

We walked for a few minutes before we reached the crater.

I miss eating this.
