As part of our time together Jo Anne and I will be joined by some of her family on a trip to Baguio City. Baguio City is in a mountainous region of the Philippines and is known as the summer capitol of the Philippines.
After the first house we had reserved fell through we had to look for another house. Yesterday, Jo Anne was able to get another house with 3 bedrooms for 9000 pesos for three nights. With the exchange rate today of 47.45 pesos per US $1 that is $63.23 a night for the house. Rooms at the hotel that I work at is going for $72 per night and you get just one room with no kitchen. The house also comes with a kitchen, living room, and 2 bathrooms.
We will be using a Hyundai Starex for most of the time I am in the Philippines. The use of the van will save us from having to use taxis and bus for transportation.
We hope you will check back to our Blog. We will try to post pictures and updates about our time together.
