The purpose of taking Banaue route was to experience it even for just a bit. Keri na kahit view lang during travel. While on bus we were hooked up in traffic. We are about 2-3 hours left nalang to Banaue sabay totally engine off na sa tagal, ouch! Buti nalang may comfort room yung bus. I’m praying na it will not take long pero it took 3 hours. As per the driver, it’s because of the landslides and the broken bridge kaya naging halos 1 way nlng.
Finally at Banaue, it’s almost 12noon and if pipilitin namin abutan ung scheduled trip going Bontoc pa puntang Sagada, we will be able to make it pero hapon na. It will be too expensive naman to rent a vehicle going there. I guess we are stucked up. I'm quite worried for not being able to complete our itinerary. A tour guide who assisted us offered to do a quick tour in Banaue and helped us to find a place to stay.
Different tribes still exist, I guess there’s no more head hunters but native cultures still remains such as burying a family member near the house and will dig up the bones after several days. First born son will inherit everything from the family except the house which is for the youngest son. Your head will be cut off hurting a girl physically. They also speak good English too. As per Mark, they will be punish in school for speaking other languagse. EOP din cla. :p
Next stop: Sagada Finally...
