Traveling from Manila to Banaue should have taken 6 hours. Thanks to unimaginable traffic, it took 16 instead. Most of which were stopped for multiple hours on winding roads, with nothing around. We were lucky to be in a private van with tinted windows, which were up due to the excruciating heat. Maybe it was the extreme boredom, but I got totally lost watching the faces of other people, mostly busses full of commuters, experiencing this unbelievable situation. Curious where they had been and where they were going, I snuck a few pics through the car window. They don't even come close to conveying how truly f*cked this situation was.
