Holy Week (April 7, 2012)

We were supposed to head back to Manila after Caleruega but it was already past 6pm. We were all really exhausted. Traffic in the Tagaytay area was terrible. We figured we would also encounter heavy traffic in the SLEX (South Luzon Expressway) so we just decided to find a place to spend the night. Our previous hotel was fully booked but they recommended their sister hotel, the Alfonso Hotel Farm also in Alfonso, Cavite.

A well maintained secluded farm environment with rooms/cottages for rent. It has two swimming pools, a stable where you can hire horses for riding. A perfect laid back getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Our 8th church: Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Tagaytay, Cavite. It has a grotto, and candles chapel on its grounds. Its stations of the Cross was inside a hallway in the lower level of the Church.

We only had provisions for 2 days since it was supposed to be just an overnighter trip. But we recycled our clothes. It was a hectic 3 days and the weather was quite warm and humid. But it was an enjoyable Holy Week, we were able to visit 8 churches so it was worth all the sweat stains, the tired feet and the last minute changes!
