Prison Riot at Taal: Preview

Since we went to different locations on our stay in Taal last Sunday (November 11), I have to set my post into different parts XD. 

Actually, it was really a tiring day as some of us sacrificed a few hours of sleep just to be at Sir Jo's Studio at 3:00am. XD Fortunately, I was able to doze-off on our way to Tagaytay for some breakfast and for a final meeting going to Taal. 

As we move on from Tagaytay to Taal, our group was welcomed with a good view of the sunrise on our way but we didn't took photos of it as we had to be in the Basilica de San Martin de Tours by 7:00am. 

Once we got there, I was amazed on how people there were able to preserve their heritage. As most of the houses there were still the same in a way it has not been altered but rather preserved. 

We toured two churches, three museums, a balisong (pocket knife) store and witnessed a live horse racing on the streets. 

Our way home was more tiring as we had to go the other route via Star Tollway that took us around 4 hours but still I enjoyed that day of shooting and learning. 

Here are some pictures I took (unedited so please don't steal, God is watching). More soon on my succeeding posts per location.

  2. Taal reminds me of our family's hometown, Vigan. I've been to the Basilica once and took lots of photos inside the beautiful basilica. Sadly, I've lost the files.
