I silently prayed and hoped to see the beauty of the English countryside, as seen in the movie adaptations of Atonement and Never Let Me Go.
I got something better–the best, even: Bukidnon. Upon entering the curving roads to the mountain province, I instantly felt like a donor being driven around on her last days. In a good way, of course. Don’t we want to see the best of the world before we die?
And I did see the best landscapes the world could offer. All around, 360-degrees in total: a never ending green, and clear white clouds that seemed closer than I could ever imagine. Even in the rain, the entire settings looked peaceful, as if it were simply taking a rest.
