We continued to Sonya's Garden to see the beautiful landscaping and herbal gardens. Lush vegetation surrounds the visitors as they walk along brick paths with a Spanish ambiance. Later we visited the Puzzle Museum where there were over 2000 puzzles assembled by one woman over the last 28 years. I never knew there were puzzles with 35000 pieces! Completing 1000 pieces is more than a challenge for me. We had the chance to pick up a mushroom burger...no meat, mushrooms and cheese and picnic at a park where we had a beautiful view of Taal Lake and volcano. The opportunity to zip line at the park was inviting and an experience I had to have. My TGC teaching partner, Amanda Wallace, was up for the challenge. It was a beautiful place to zip line for the first time.
Sunday, we toured Calamba city with the Pabale and Algar families and Ms. Shirley Azaula, a science teacher from MHCC. We visited the Calamba Rizal Park/Plaza. Jose Rizal was a national hero who was executed in the area now known as Rizal Park. A large monument measuring 22 feet in height was erected in 2011.
