During our tour of the city, we stopped by the Palawan Special Battalion WW2 Memorial Museum, met a really friendly Myna, learned how to weave with the guidance of 11th grader Maricris Lapurga (she weaves part-time when she's not in school) and dropped by Baker's Hill, a bakery that has expanded into a theme park.
