Theres Paradise at the end of that Long and Winding Road (Part 8)

We tend to appreciate great things in life but there are simple wonders that gives us joy. Take for example the Patapat Viaduct of Ilocos Norte. Considered as the fourth longest bridge in the country, it was built during the Marcos Regime and was unveiled in October 1986. This was the answer to landslides and road congestion. The road is elevated 30 meters above sea level and connects Maharlika Highway in Laoag to the Cagayan Valley (and I am almost in the northern part of the philippines). Kuya Noel said that during good weather we can see part of the Batanes Island and when he was young, his Dad usually brought him there riding a boat. Batanes, so near yet so far! (copyright applies)

When Kuya Noel told us we are headed to the "Paraiso ni Anton", I got lost. At the back of my mind, I was thinking lush gardens and geometric buildings. But it turns out the Paradise was surreal. I don't know if the statue there was miraculous but then we said our fervent prayers. Jesus was happy to see us.
