Some amazing photos CB.
IMG_2671.JPGIMG_2732.JPGIMG_2728.JPGIMG_2672.JPGIMG_2731.JPG strawberries are what the little girl above was harvesting and sorting. they are quite a big deal in baguio since theres no other way to get a strawberry in Philippines. each berry costs a bundle. its a tourism thing. locals make all sorts of alcoholic beverages and stews you name it from those little berries we take for granted. to them they are a rare luxury they act like. big bucks!
IMG_2718.JPGIMG_2715.JPGIMG_2717.JPGIMG_2719.JPGIMG_2751.JPG funny story. Kentucky fried chicken-baguio. we see signs all up and down the street for kfc like its some kind of main event to put on your planner or something. we go to the building and its upstairs inside a busy car rental terminal. I go upstairs just to see the menu and ask where its at and they point oh its back there! I go back in the corner and theres a shoe closet sized kfc with a cheap ass white plastic door. theres enough room inside the kfc for one skinny manager to turn around and take your order. it had a sign on the door that said sorry were closed. heheheh! fucking with people-its more fun in the Philippines!
IMG_3061.JPGIMG_3093.JPGIMG_3095.JPGIMG_3063.JPGIMG_3062.JPG I love the average jeepney rides so much its hard to not take pics each time of the inside. this one had a jewelry store add sticker tacked up graffiti style. I couldn't bring myself to tear it down for keepsakes stock art or anything so I let it be. it might have been owned by the jeepney owner I never asked. bride seems to have what is likely a locally made m4 copy known as ferfrans pnp-11 or follow-up models. a rifle series im still trying to get good pics of.
