Baguio City Adventures: Loakan Road and PMA

I spent the whole Christmas break in Baguio City… here’s an account of how I spent my days up there… 😀

Dec 30: Loakan Road

I wasn’t able to take pics of this route during the last Milo Half-Marathon so I decided to run this route this day as part of my run…

The Milo route just passes by the Philippine Military Academy, the training academy of future officers of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, but since I was already within the area… I decided to take a peek inside…
