Lunch with a view

I had just finished this tough climb back from Tapiyah waterfalls and reached the restaurant where we had ordered food. I had been seeing rice terraces and tropical forests all day. In fact, most of my trek and steep climbs were through the amphitheater style stone walled terraces of Batad in Northern Philippines, which are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the 8th wonders of the world.

Wholesome lunch with a great view - at Batad Rice Terraces, Philippines
When you are trekking and your heart rate is racing, you see all natural beauty around you, but you have to focus on the mission in hand, which is to watch your footing else you will be one with the rice fields about 15 feet below. But, thankfully for me, I got a relaxed view when I had a simple and wholesome lunch at a place that overlooked these rice terraces. My heart had stopped pumping and I was able to enjoy my lunch with a 8th wonder of a view. I hope you enjoy it too.
