The site is said to be the exact location where Portuguese Magellan planted the cross upon his arrival in Cebu in March 1521. As stated on the marker at the bottom of the cross, the original artifact is encased inside the wooden Tindalo cross. The painted ceiling illustrates this historic event.

The vibrant green grass, huge rocky peaks, and magnificent stone ruins are all stunning. Once upon a time, this archeological marvel was an Inca city (in the 15th and 16th centuries). To get here, you'll need to plan ahead of time. The Inca Trail is only accessible twice a day (in the morning and afternoon), and you must either hike or take a bus from the adjacent town of Aguas Calientes to get there.

As we arrived the apartment we've rent. I was lost in my deep, deep thoughts, “How are we going to fit in, We are 10 but there’s only 1 room” One of our acquaintances exclaimed “Mamaya na lang natin problemahin, kumain muna tayo. ” We all agreed with her, so we looked for a nice place to eat dinner. This is the most epic part, the first restaurant we've got ourselves into seems a nice place, they have fish swimming in their aquarium and their dining table has a grill-like structure in the middle, however we can’t understand each other, there’s a language barrier. It’s past 12 midnight already and we’re all starving, so we decided to look for another place to eat, that somehow understands English, Gladly, we’ve found one. ( I would like to apologize, I didn’t get the name of the restaurant, due to my hungry stomach.) The place was very welcoming as you enter the restaurant you’ll smell the savory flavors and the spices that they were using. As we start to place our orders. Yes, there are still a bit of complications but not like the first one we went to. Fortunately, one of our acquaintances got an idea, He asked the crew if they have Wi-Fi and yes they have. He used the Google translator and Thank God! After an hour battling with the language barrier We then finally placed our orders and they served them correctly. All our struggles where all worth it, the food were all delicious, My favorite dish was the spinach I never thought it could be so good, It was steamed with their savory flavors and spices, served along with their delectable chicken and tea, “Yum… yum… yum” My tummy has never been that satisfied! After eating a scrumptious dinner, we head-back to our apartment. As we stroll around... We saw the Portuguese inspired apartments, building structures and the hazy lights from their posts which adds up to that magical and relaxing feeling, It was so magical! I get to feel the wind running through my hair The end (✿◡‿◡) . . . . Thanks for visiting my list, till then ಥ_ಥ Stay humble, stay hungry, stay cute (✿◡‿◡)
