That’s from the report published by the Department of Interior and Local Government in their website on August 23. Considering that there are 1,491 municipalities in the country, being in the Top 6 is a great feat for San Luis. Mayor Annabelle Tangson posted this comment in my FB post about her town’s accomplishment:
Thank you sa mga opisyales at mga mamamayan ng San Luis. Nangyari Ito dahil sa ating pagkakaisa at mabuting pagsasamat, sa susunod dapat number one na. Taos pusong pasasalamat!
A couple of weeks ago I got a tip from fellow photographer Jaymar about this other waterfalls in L. Pimentel, so we planned to go there and take pictures. I also decided to have a brief detour to Banju Springs in Brgy. Real, a tourist destination with very few online presence. So I posted an announcement in the Aurora Camera Club FB page about the trip and some group members responded. The date was set to Sunday, September 1. The meeting place was at the Quezon Park and I went there early to chek what’s new at the Museo de Baler – nothing. I saw Von and Mato waiting for me when I got out of the museum. There’s also Eddieboi but he’s just there for a quick meet and greet because he can’t come. We took off in our motorcycles a little after 10 am, had a brief stop at Caltex for provisions and fuel then off we went to San Luis. At Disalet Bridge, Rey and Jaymar and his friend were waiting for us. A few more chit-chats then off we go.
