I was surfing thru Ilocos Norte Online and I was struck by its tagline which goes “Ilocos Norte, not just churches!” That’s true. While many of my friends who have gone to Ilocos or plans to go there recalls Ilocos with grand and majestic churches, the province is really more than what it’s alluded to. I was very lucky to capture a rare flower (well, in my sight; somewhere in Burgos going to Pagudpud) in the family of the lilies in one of my vacations there, which I have uploaded here. While the province offers great historical insights because of its century old churches, the flower I have captured stands out among the rest. In a place where you thought what you’ll see are all the same, think not. The next time you go to Ilocos (or anywhere for that matter), do not ignore the small things because they are as great as the big ones!
