On the way to  Vigan .

 

From La Union , we left first thing in the morning , on the way to Vigan . Its a colonial city and very touristic , in Ilocos . Hitchhiking was working good , a couple of cars drove us . Until , a young guy drove us direct to Vigan . He was very friendly , he stopped for us taking pictures and he drove us until downtown .

The city was full of tourists . It was very warm . Acommodation was so expensive . So , we decided to visit the city and continue to  North Ilocos .

My favorite place was Main Square , Plaza , with a big fountain . At the bottom , you can see a cathedral . Street are colonial style with the pavement and you can see horse-cars around .

We visited a market , little bit far from the touristic places . We were eating empanadas , with longaniza . It was very tasty !! Its the typical product in Ilocos ! Before getting dark , we left hitchhiking on the way to Pagudpud …

We were lucky , after 30 minutes walking to ask for a ride  . A truck driver , drove us 30 kilometers before Pagudpud . We did over 100 kilometers with them , stopping for dinner included  . Finally , at night , they dropped us in a beautiful beach , where we spent the night .
