Then we stopped at a jar factory in Vigan for some pasalubong shopping.
The next one, my favorite place here, is the Crisologo Museum, which you can visit for free, although there is a donation box at the entrance. I strongly encourage visitors to donate because this place needs to stay for a long, long time.
The collections here are amazing! It took Tere and me a long time to completely tour the place and see everything.
|Great leaders, yo!|
|I love the look of this old kitchen. Very creepy!|
Next stop, Baluarte, the zoo developed by Singson. I just stayed near the gate.
Last one, the famous Calle Crisologo, a street lined with well-preserved Spanish-era structures. Honestly, I had high expectations for this one, so was a bit disappointed.
They say this street was saved from bombings during WWII because of one Japanese General who married a Filipina.
The only mode of transportation allowed to pass are kalesas, or horse-drawn carriages (and we've seen bikes, too, in one of the photos above).

|One thing's for sure though, Calle Crisologo looks wonderful at night!|
|Here in Vigan, even new buildings follow old Spanish architecture, like this McDo branch.|
Before we had our dinner, we watched and got splashed by a 30-minute dancing fountain presentation, which happens every day, we're told. It's more fun in Ilocos! But it's still funnier in Davao. :)
