My friends (Keara and Yeye) and I spent our Independence Day at the top of a mountain. It was an exhausting but a great experience to celebrate a special holiday for the Philippines, even though we didn’t bring a flag with us.

Let me share with you guys a short story about what happened before the actual climb. It was supposed to happen before school starts, but Keara and I were having a hard time finding someone to accompany us, but days before the climb, I posted a climb in our Antioch group on Facebook and asked if anyone wanted to climb, unfortunately only Yeye agreed and came along.

We met lots of people, and got time to talk to them during the climb. There’s this man and that his group had been so nice to us and kept on motivating Yeye, who had a tough time, and we for our knees are suffering too. During the half of the climb, he insisted to take a picture of us and we also took a picture with him and his group

We also encounter “Good morning”s. Oh, and there’s this rule whenever you go for a hike: ALWAYS GREET EVERYBODY!

Okay, so.. We met a lot of nice and cool people during the hike and at the top of Mt. Pico de Loro. And I think we gain a much, much closer friendship after the hike. I am hoping that next time, there will be more of us than more of them.
