Vigan Calle Crisologo
One of my super moon chase adventures took me at Vigan City's Calle Crisologo (Philippines) during the wee after hours to capture this image. The silence was deafening. It's quite challenging especially i was alone and the streets were deserted. Not a soul stirred. Its good that i did not entertain horror movie thoughts. Otherwise, I wouldn't have achieved my goal. What kept me going was just sheer determination and God as company.

Calle Crisologo is the main street in the historic Vigan City, Philippines, and Calle Crisologo- named after  Mena Pecson Crisologo, one of the most-respected sons of Ilocos. Mena P. Crisologo wrote "Mining Wenno Ayat ti Kararwa", which many people compare to Dr. Jose Rizal’s "Noli Me Tangere" ; an Ilocano translation of Don Quixote dubbed  "Don Calixtofaro de la Kota Caballero de la Luna" ; and last but not the least, a zarzuela entitled "Codigo Municipal".

Vigan enjoys There are two kinds of seasons - the dry season from November to April and the wet season from May to October which Vigan City enjoys. Whilst it is recommended that travelers visit during dry season, especially from December to February when temperatures are much cooler and touring will most likely not be interrupted by rains, it's also good to visit Vigan during the rainy season to appreciate Vigan's cobblestone roads/streets become wet and Venice-like.

Till next blog.
