I took another marathon trip last April 6 and 7 to be just in time for Mountain Province's Annual Lang-ay Festival.
Witnessing and covering the event was exhausting, but it thrilled me just the same because I got the chance to mingle with the different tribes of the Cordillera people. Watching the SLU Dance Troupe perform was likewise a source of pride for my alma mater. The street dancing was superb as the participants gave their best to entertain the locals and tourists. And communing with them along the historic Chico river where the governor treated all participants for lunch was a humbling experience--where all people become co-equals.
This years' theme was "Nurturing History and Culture".
It was an honor to be part of this. If my schedule permits, I will definitely go back next year.
