Weekend in Baguio

We went to Baguio for the weekend of February 7. As always, it was lovely. We took our friends, Anya and Sasha, and their cute little daughter Masha, and stayed at the cottage on the incredible grounds of the Ambassador’s residence there.

The residence dates from before World War II. In fact, all of Baguio was an invention of the Americans during colonial times. It was established as a place to get out of the heat in the hotest months, and the whole colonial government would move to Baguio for months at a time. It is still a great place to beat the heat. In the center of Luzon and nestled among the mountains, it is both cooler and dryer than the rest of the island. The residence and grounds must be one of the nicest spots in Baguio.

If you ask me, Anya was pretty brave to go out onto this bridge. It’s on the Kennon Road up into the mountains below Baguio. The spot, with the waterfall and river, is pretty spectacular.

Of course, we had to take advantage of being in such a beautiful place to snap a few photos.
