On the road for a tour of Quezon City made my day even under the scourching heat of the sun. Traversing the largest city of metropolitan Manila with our tour guide citing the history and background of the places we past by. An afternoon of bondimg with nature and beautiful people. Our first stop was the La Mesa Ecopark which is located at east fairview Quezon City, the Philippines" largest ecological park in a metro setting. Breathing the fresh air induces a meditative state of well being.The 33 hectare park is teeming with opportunities for adventure seekers like zip line rides,hiking, mountain biking,and fishing.
The beautiful lagoon offers a paddle boat ride.There is the large salt water pools unique to La Mesa Eco Park which one can enjoy. Simply walking and communing with nature one can fell the calmness of ones inner being.Our next stop was Erehwon Center for the Arts in 1 Don Francisco Street, Villa Beatriz, old Balara, Quezon City.

Founder Rafael Benitez says Erehwon is committed to enrich art within its host community,push for the proliferation of public art and propel for the momentum for the formation of an Art Policy Council that will help prioritize the art agenda among government policy makers.
