Capas, Tarlac, 5:51pm
The sun momentarily freezes as i hurriedly fixed my tent ;D 

let me call it a day after 110 Km of "turtle pace" pedaling.

TRIVIA:
Bicycle touring is cycling over long distances – prioritizing pleasure and endurance over utility or speed.

Filipino Hospitality Still Lives On! (1st Story)

I took my lunch in Moncada-San Manuel area. I was so surprised when the old woman tending the carenderia offered me to stay for at least an hour so that i could rest further. She lead me to this steel bed at the shaded portion outside her house. As she puts a plastic mat on it, she told me "kala ko amerikano lang ang nag gaganyan (pointing to my loaded bike). nung isang buwan may kumain din dito na dalawang amerikano, may dala lang silang sketch papuntang Baguio pero parang tringin ko, mas mabigat pa ang dala dala nilang mga bagahe." i simply smile and lean my back to the bed a took a nap.
Lola was taking a siesta when left but i left a short note thanking her for what she did.

habang kinukunan ko ang tanawing ito, nanalangin ako na sana sa susunod na mapadaan ako dito ay hindi housing project o mall ang makikita ko.

Nag-iisa sa gitna ng parang
Siya’y nag-iisip, sarili niya’y tinatanong
“Bakit kaya?”
Nagtitiis sa init ng araw... ;D
