It took me four hours to reach Taal, Batangas from Buendia, Pasay City. It was my first time to visit the place and I asked the bus conductor three times to tell me exactly where to get off. There were less than ten passengers in the bus when I finally reached my destination. The first thing I saw was a luminous cross from afar. There was no one around except one tricycle driver who asked me if I wanted a ride. Seconds later, I heard someone calling my name. It’s the person who invited me to be there.
The next morning, before I did the task assigned to me, I was able to stroll around the area. Taal Basilica is one of its major attractions. Rich in cultural heritage, it is considred as a religious bastion of the place.
Before I leave, I took this shot. The night was fast approaching. And the luminous cross of this hallowed edifice began to give its silent but powerful radiance.
