The original plan was to visit the town of Ronda to check out a spring called Lapnis. The spring is quite popular among local thrill-seekers and I wanted to see for myself if it is indeed as awesome as they say. I knew that finding it would be pretty challenging, so I decided to ask Bojo to come with me. Well, the truth is, we didn't find it during this trip. What we did find was the mind-blowing Pityak Falls and a bowl of the best-tasting homemade chicken tinola.
Bojo and I were eating our ice cream at the Molave Milk Station in Barili when he asked if I knew where Dumanjug was. I told him ...
The rock formations were amazing, Pityak Falls in Cebu.
Moving away from the usual stuff we feature everyday Tuesday, I thought of featuring some of the local celebrations of "fiestas" that each municipality in the province celebrates each year. Last weekend I was able to attend the fiesta celebrations in the City of Danao (Karansa), which showed a colorful parade of children dressed in brightly colored costumes. From the north of Cebu we now move to Dumanjug who will be celebrating their fiesta next month that would be another place to check out if you are into backpacking or road trips to experience life outside the city.
