Morning dawns in Sagada: should I leave today for Bontoc?

There were so many times on my bike journey that I would come to an intersection and just have no clue whether to go left or right. After many agonizing moments and forced decisions, I learned that indeed if things weren't clear, that it was the moment to just chill. Maybe to pump some air in my tires or something. That's when the local with helpful advice would walk by, I'd see a hidden sign post, or maybe a butterfly would just flutter off in a particular direction.

And then I'd continue. My tires a little fuller, my ride a little smoother, my smile... intact!
