It started with a call from Kristin Lerin, the travel editor of Sunstar’s Live. She asked if I was willing to write about the mountains of Cebu for Sunstar Yearbook 2012. Of course, I giddily yes-sed.
No, I’m not an expert in mountain climbing. My climber friends are. They’ve been scaling these mountains long before I started. The six-page feature was too abrupt for the seven mountains. I missed out a lot of details and names. EWIT, who trailed with me for the entire weekends of May 2011, should have a page dedicated to them. Pero kay limited lagi, ari nalang ko magpasalamat! Te Myand! Sir Ice! Aye! and the rest of EWIT! Those I’ve climbed with, tagay! I still owe you guys a long feature here on BWAB.
See you on the trail!
Pwede na pang-Oscar? 😀
