Baguio Adventure Day 3: At Strawberry Farms and Back to Burnham Park

My wife, Lei,  was so excited on our third day. Finally, we would now go to the Strawberry Farms which we had not  visited during our Baguio trip almost three years ago. For the price of P250/kilo, Lei was able to pick red, luscious strawberries at the farm.

Before leaving, I took one last shot of the Strawberry Farms…

After enduring the heat and the long commute from La Trinidad back to Baguio City, we decided to hang out at Burnham Park again. On the way, we discovered Baguio’s own Rizal Monument which I also took a picture of.

As we crossed the street from the Rizal Monument to Burnham Park, I noticed a sculpture partly covered by a tarp. It seemed to be a bust of Daniel Burnham, although I’m not sure. I took a picture of it. After rounding a corner, we read a sign about the ongoing renovations of Rose Park of which the bust would be a part of.

We were finally back in Burnham Park, by the man-made lake. It was so nice to feel the warmth of the sun.

As we got hungry from all the walking and sight-seeing we decided to go back to SM. While crossing the soccer field on the other side of Burnham Park, I noticed what seemed like a statue of some sort. Upon approaching it, we saw that it was an Igorot sculpture which had fallen to a state of neglect. Even the people around seemed oblivious to its presence as they lazily sat on mats underneath. But for me, it was another perfect subject.

As the day ended once again, my wife and I stopped to rest at a BDO branch at Session Road. While resting I took a picture of my wife against the fiery sky of the setting sun…

Thus ends Day 3. See you on our last day in Baguio in the next post! 🙂
