As a side trip to our Pahiyas Festival 2012 trip, I took K to Kamay ni Hesus. I had been there two years ago but it’s always a good thing to come back and be a tour guide to a friend.
It was the middle of the day, the sun was shining oh-so-brightly and I was feeling like fainting. We’re so used to climbing mountains at that level of heat, but it’s really different when you’re up several MASL than when you’re enduring heat in the lowlands.
The Noah’s Ark was still under construction when I first visited the place but it was all done now and being used as a retreat house.
We didn’t have any tripod and it was a good thing someone asked me for a favor of having their group photo taken. I also asked her to do the same for K and I at the doorstep of Noah’s Ark.
Despite the heat, we proceeded in climbing the steps towards the Ascending Christ, which is the third biggest in the world.
We passed by stations of the cross along the way but we didn’t pause to pray due to the scorching heat. Climbing the steps at that temperature was sacrifice enough, really.
And as a self-confessed photog wannabe, I took assuming shots. LoL! I kinda played around with Photoshop so forgive me for the pics if you didn’t like them.
