Close to a week after I got back to Dumaguete, I finally managed to take my bike out for an extended morning spin. By now I'm quite taken with the pleasures of the Batinguel route, and so that's exactly where I started again. Today, I paid another visit to Palinpinon.
Palinpinon is about 8 km. from the city, high up in the hills and surrounded by cliffs and greenery. Owing to its height, the air is a bit cool; because of the surrounding mountains and the forest cover, it's pleasantly shady.
I made an interesting discovery today: a small lily pond high up. I just had to take a snapshot.
