tuguegarao city, philippines

My friend, told me that we were going to do a profile story of a gamefowl breeder in TUGUEGARAO. I wondered, where is Tuguegarao? Is it a town, a city, or a province? Eventhough I am Filipino, you can’t blame me. We have over 7,000 islands in the archipelago and you can just imagine how many cities and towns there are.:-) Flying to Manila, we took another flight to Tuguegarao City, up to the northernmost part of the Philippines. The flight usually takes 50 minutes, but we got there 10 minutes early, thanks to the crisp wind of March. We gathered some brochures at the airport and crammed ourselves with information about our destination. We learned that Tuguegarao City is the capital of Cagayan, the northernmost province of Luzon. Without much knowledge of the place, we just contented ourselves to be led by our hosts around their city. First stop was lunch at Kainang Pinoy, a restaurant that opened just three days before we arrived. After the meal, we were deposited at Pensionne Roma—our home for the next two days—a simple but cool refuge to the city’s sweltering heat. We were told that in the summer, noontime temperature rises to as much as 39°C. Our host, jokes, “Kita niyo, walang maputi dito! (Nobody is white around here!)” We were also told that when it gets really hot, one could fry an egg on the car’s roof top! But the more interesting sites are not in Tuguegarao City itself, but in surrounding towns. Would you like to visit this placE?
