IGUIG: 01 – Big Jesus and the Big Bad Romans


The Quadsi driver took us to Don Domingo Market and got paid his due. I gave him 500. I know I suck at Math but this is more like a tip thing rather than a miscalculation. Besides, he would have made a silly excuse for not having coins for change anyway. We boarded a jeep going to Iguig and it took almost an hour, not because the road was long but because the jeep had lots of stopovers. We had to drop by a shop to pick up how many boxes of tiles, and then we stopped by another shop to unload them. It was like a semi-private trip. By the way, one pays the fare in Tuguegarao when you get OFF the vehicle, which I find weird since it is the exact opposite in Metro Manila. Moving on, you go uphill once you reach Calvary. Once on top you get to see Iguig Church (St. James Parish) and the life-size Stations of the Cross overlooking the Cagayan River. No joke, amazing view.


I had to bid Andoy goodbye because I had decided to spend the night at Santa Ana instead. I gave him a generous tip and then we went back to Tuguegarao. I caught a van going to Santa Ana and my three-hour trip commenced. I came back the next day by riding a similar van. Again, three hours but at least it was no longer dark.
