Jun 17, 2011 - Baguio and the Philippine Baptist Theological Seminary

Limited connection to Internet in Baguio meant no new blog posts. But, that aside, I loved Baguio. This is my third trip to the Philippines but I have done almost nothing outside of Manila. So, on this trip I decided to make a couple of extra trips. Baguio is a city in the mountains of Luzon that was established by Americans. It is a busy, crowded place, but definitely not Manila. First, people in Baguio didn't stare at me every where I went. When I made that observations to a Philippine friend in Baguio, she told me that it is probably...

Jun 17, 2011 - Baguio Barber

So, I meant to get a haircut before I left to come to the Philippines, but it somehow never materialized into more than an idea. So, I've been getting shaggier and shaggier the whole time I've been in Asia. The hair I can deal with. I mean, honestly, there isn't that much hair to worry about. But the facial hair is another matter entirely. I usually keep the beard trimmed pretty short, but didn't bring any clippers with me. As the hair on my lip gets longer and starts to curl into my mouth . . . well, it gets pretty nasty. And I can't seem...

Well, I made it out of San Juan finally, and thank god I did. I have had the most amazing time it was simply perfect. Photos will follow but I have to convert them on my laptop which is in San Juan. So I headed out on the bus to Baguio, it's supposed to be this really cultural laid back amazing place with arty cafes etc. No. It's a dump with one zillion people living there. I stayed one night in a dive which was so noisy and the water came out brown but who cares. Whilst having my dusk time San Miguel light I was eaves dropping on the next...

Nov 4, 2005 - Baguio

OK, I have been debating whether or not to post the journal entry that follows. I have been waiting for an afternoon to clean it up and make it coherent, but I have been gloriously busy and have not had the chance. So, I am posting a big chunk of my journal entries from the healing trip around Baguio unedited and unaltered from their original form. A couple of caveats.

Sep 24, 2005 - Baguio..Philippines

Heading north from Lanila toward northern Luzon the air con bus was so cold I put on my long pants, then my jacket, then my cap, then my windbreaker pulled over my head. I looked like a mummy. The locals were all laughing and sitting calmly in short sleeve shirts. Tbe bus moved along at 15 mph due to all the life on the two lane hwy..i.e trucks, tricycles, cars, buses, people, carts, animals, it all travels on the road. They have not heard of sidewalks here. Shops, houses and towns are all connected now with no interuption. About 5 hours...
