I just couldn't describe what I felt when I saw this beauty. Yes, I have seen pictures of this volcano on the net thousands of times but seeing its majestic cone with my very own eyes is just plain WOW. I was even more ecstatic when I finally got to see the ruins of Cagsawa at the town of Daraga. This place is the best vantage point for viewing the volcano and probably is the most photographed location in Albay. All that remains is the bell tower which reminds everyone how powerful and deadly this beauty is. During its deadly eruption in 1814, a lot of people sought refuge in this church, thinking they would be saved but all of them perished when the town was engulfed in ashes and lava.
|just plain 'wow'|
