On this day we met for breakfast @ 6:15 am and journeyed on a 2 hour drive to the beautiful Tagaytay.
First stop was the Mary Mother of God church.
People from everywhere come here to pray and show their devotion.
Before heading to Picnic Grove Park, students tried taho, a traditional Filipino snack made out of tofu with added syrup and tapioca for sweetness.
Off to Picnic Grove, Tagaytay… first stop: horseback riding.
Next stop: The Fish Spa where skin exfoliation is done by fish!!
Beautiful scenery everywhere you look in Tagaytay.
Time for lunch and fresh fruit shakes!! Mmmmm.
Next stop: The cable car… but first we need to cross this bridge… a scary feat for some of us (ummm… Merle) 🙂
Next stop: The butterfly conservatory.
Karol and Michael bought some balot – mature duck egg, a Filipino delicacy.
Last stop: The petting farm.
Now back to the hotel… but one last shot of the beautiful landscape before heading back to Quezon City.
The students all got matching personalized bracelets.
Tomorrow we’re off to serve lunch, do a community clean up and give Christmas gifts to the children of El Dorado.
