They have seen its effects, the limitations, and the people that have been due to the virus.

It was raining hard that time so it took us 10 hours to arrive in Vigan. We left Manila around 2 p.m. and arrived at the hotel around 10p.m. and I was so hungry already. We had dinner on the corner of our hotel (forgot the name of the resto). We had their famous delicacies.

The next morning we went on a Kalesa ride to stroll around the city. It costs about 200 php and the Kutsero will show us around. 

Our first stop was the Vigan Museum.

Pardon my face but hubby asked me to do that. Hmf.
