Tito Bingbong said he would take us on a road trip for us to see different facets of his hometown (Tanjay) and some places in Dumaguete City. We were not sure where the road will take us, so we just sat comfortably inside the van and enjoyed the day.
Gathering Sugar Cane. Sugar cane is one of the known crops grown in this part of the country, and not only were we able to meet and greet some of the workers, they also gave us some sugarcane to take home. Sweet!
Old Azucarera Train. In the olden days, big sugar cane plantations uses trains to collect all the harvested sugar cane. This old train is no longer working as is just there as a decoration of sorts, but they said that there are still some plantations that uses train for their harvests.
A Nameless Church. We just spotted this church along the way, and I was very thankful I was able to take a snapshot of it, even if we were inside the van. I am not sure, though, if this was a Catholic Church or not.
Lunch Time. We ate lunch at this food place - we had Lumpiang Shanghai, Calamares, Pancit, and other foods, and yes, all the dishes we ate were delicious. Tito Bingbong paid for lunch… thanks!
After eating lunch, Tito Bingbong drove us to Dumaguete City (approx. 33kms. away). Pictures from Dumaguete City will be posted tomorrow. =)
