Early in the morning of December 4, we rode the jeepney from Tinglayan to Bontoc (Php 20.00). We had breakfast at the hotel and I paid Php 105.00 for my food and coffee. There, we also got the chance to charge our phones and camera batteries and, while at it, encountered the creepy man of Bontoc.

Masferre Country Inn and Restaurant
This place serves good home-cooked food at a fair price and in big portions. People usually flock here for breakfast, lunch and dinner. What I loved is the artistic decor and photos displayed on the walls, plus the calming view of Sagada hills when seated beside the windows.
Because our host in Sabangan couldn’t meet us until later that afternoon, Tara and I walked around Bontoc and got to visit the Bontoc Museum. The entrance fee for which was Php 40.00 but it was worth it, if you would really like to learn about their history. They also had replicas of tribal houses, in one of which a couple of couchsurfers we would meet on this trip had the pleasure of sleeping.
