Interlude: Bundok ng Tikew (Mount Kalisungan)

 * view of Bundok ng Tikew from Calauan in the morning

Situated between San Pablo City (Barangay San Mateo) and Calauan, Laguna (Barangay Imok), Bundok ng Tikew, or to be more precise Mount Kalisungan, is easily identifiable because of the P.L.D.T. antenna on its top. Passing near its top aboard a jeepney between 8 and 9 in the morning I did not expect to experience such cold air there. I have always passed by the place when I was still a full-time student but never experienced that. Looking outside the vehicle it appears that this part is not usually reached by sunlight in the morning for the mountain blocks it as the sun rises from the east.

This may seem inconsequential, if not irrelevant. But thiis only shows that we can have new experiences in places that we would otherwise treat as ordinary.

Nature indeed has lots of surprises for us mortals.
