Lazy

photo hunt

Calle Crisologo

Whenever my siblings and I visit my most favorite place (City of Vigan, Ilocos Sur), it would always be just a day trip, because we don't have any house to stay at, and the hotels would eat our money, so come after lunch when the sun is all shining and we feel a little lazy to roam around because of the heat, we just go to the ever famous Calle Crisologo to lounge. Along the street are wooden benches for the tourist to sit on, and honestly speaking, even if I just sit there for hours, I am never bored because seeing the many tourists (of different races, shapes, and sizes) walking and taking pictures, as well as the horse-drawn carriages passing by the street was more than enough to keep me company.

This picture was taken last May. Brother and I were supposed to check the museums, but we arrived late, and most of the museums were already closed. Brother didn't want to go to Baluarte anymore, so we decided to stay in Calle Crisologo and wait for the sunset. In between taking pictures and watching the people pass by the street, we were lucky that a fishball vendor passed by, and this is our favorite street food, so we just binged on it. =) How fun it is to enjoy a lazy afternoon eating a favorite food!

Sounds exhausting to me. I like the sidecar on the bike.

Sounds like a super idea...just laze around after a busy day.

Mine's a lazy 'nut caper' this week, somebody's grabbing my nuts and running away! Come on by to have a look see if you can find time.

Happy weekend.
