With Family at Baguio City

start of our family road tripping
march 09-11, 2007 friday to sunday

I brought my family here, (my mother, 2 sisters, 2 cousins and my nephew) for a very sizzling summer get-away and holy week activity. Also known as the summer capital of the Philippines, this was my second time to visit following the 2003 educational tour led by the E.C.E. department of my college.

We went to Philippine military academy, hunderd steps to grotto, burnham park, mansion house, wright park, mines view park, botanical garden, baguio cathedral and we hopped to la trinidad for strawberry field.

important note (baguio city):
Baguio City was established by Americans in 1900 at the site of an Ibaloi village known as Kafagway. Baguio City was designated by the Philippine Commission as the Summer Capital of the Philippines on June 1, 1903 and incorporated as a city by the Philippine Assembly on September 1, 1909. Baguio is the seat of government of the Cordillera Administrative Region. The name of the city is derived from the word bagiw in Ibaloi, the indigenous language of the Benguet Region, meaning 'moss'. The city is at an altitude of approximately 1500 meters (5100 ft.
