we were in san fernando city, la union for a business matter. to have some break, we decided to have a road trip to bangued, abra. a former officemate is from la paz, abra. she invited us to visit her place. when we reached bangued at noontime, we looked for a restaurant or a fast food but there was none. we ended up having our lunch in a small eatery at the back of the provincial capitol. i had never really expected bangued to be so behind in terms of development.
we went around the town then we proceeded to la paz town. we crossed a river going to lapaz. as expected, there was no bridge. we crossed thru a makeshift banca. we spent the night in lapaz. the next day, we dropped by at the mango plantation of our friend and we had some mango feast. it was exciting as we had to cross a river (again) using the coconut tree as a bridge. we really had some fun.
after that, since we still had enough time, we decided to go directly to vigan which is an hour drive from bangued.
