2002 Bagio Trip

Bagio - the summer capital of the Philippines. Located north of Manila in a heigth of 2000 meter above sea level ensures cool summer nights and cold winter temperatures. It was January when we went there and temperatures dropped to 6 degress in the night - freezing cold by Phillippine standards. It was then I realized that there is no choker on the car, it wasn't too happy about firing up in the early morning mist.

The public marked in Bagio is the best in the Philippines, the best vegetables and fruits are found here and furthermore with fresh strawberry almost 1/2 of the year around.
