Rediscovering Baguio  
By Lingling Maranan Claver
February 28, 2013

When the world was younger (and so was I), Baguio or just the thought of this city in the northern highlands of the Philippines, made my eyes well with saltwater, to paraphrase a line in a Julian Lennon song. The sight of puffy clouds and tangerine sky above golden pine trees and seemingly distant mountains stirred an intense emotion of ecstatic joy. Foggy, rainy days were lovely too, that were spent with friends huddled in one of the several folk houses to swap stories, nurse bottles of beer, and listen to a Gordon Lightfoot or a Neil Young cover. Baguio then was a small city of a few thousand people. Its residents knew each other by name and face, if not by heart.
Roadtrip Philippines: Highways, Back roads and Beyond (Part 3)

The next day, we took the early morning 30- minute ferry ride from Dapitan   to Dumaguete. Watching the sun rise from the railing, we were lucky to catch a pod of dolphins on an early morning romp.

A few kilometers from the Dumaguete shore, a distinctly American colonial structure comes into view. This is Silliman Hall which houses the University of Silliman’s Museum of Anthropology. The building, built in 1903 is the oldest surviving American structure in the Philippines.
