|The three Igorot women in the "Tour guides" meme. |
Planning our adventure to the Banaue rice terraces in 2009, I told myself that I needed have a picture of Igorots wearing their traditional outfits.
To my disappointment, there wasn’t one in sight when we got there. Just as we were about to leave though, there they were! Behind a little souvenir shop, three elderly Igorot women sat there as if waiting for us!
They don't literally tour you around the area, but they do give you the warmest welcome—their coarse and very distinct voices shouting “Yehey!” over and over again. Super cute!
For a little donation, they willingly took pictures with us and were happy to have their pictures taken.

If only I could go back there. Hhhhhmmm.
