Rio asked me what I wanted to do in Baguio and I told her that I’m pretty much open to anything but I would really want to visit this quaint, little bookshop in Casa Vallejo: Mt. Cloud Bookshop.
I’ve always loved being in bookstores. I love the smell of books. I love being surrounded by books. And, the thrill of finding that book that speaks out to me. In Manila, I would always hang out in bookstores, especially in their Filipiniana section, look at the book covers and read the backs of the books. I would always be excited to find out which of these books would be the best for me to buy during that particular visit.
I acknowledge the heart and soul poured on each page of these books. I love the diversity of stories and how beautifully they all seem to fit together in one bookshop.
And, Mt. Cloud gave me the same feeling. It’s like a world of its own, a convergence of different stories and personalities. And, I was glad to have visited it with the perfect companion. :)
