We decided to take the Manila East Road in going to Lucban using the reliable Google map. 

It was a great journey as we had a good view of rice fields and green mountains. 

We also passed the turbines in Pililla.  We got excited as we recalled our visit in Bangui. We hopefully wished that we would benefit from the energy it would produce. 

After 3.5 hours, we passed by the Lucban arch.   There was an additional hour as compared to the ETA of Google map because, unfortunately, there were a lot of cyclists on the road from Antipolo to Pagsanjan that made our trip slower. 

In 20 minutes, from the arch, we arrived at the municipal hall of Lucban. 
Bea shyly posed in front of the wall with pictures of former and present mayors. 

Adjacent to municipal building was the Patio Rizal and the Patio Rizal Restaurant and Hotel. 

We also visited and offered a short prayer in the nearby San Luis Obispo de Tolosa Parish Church. 

One will not go back to Manila without pasalubong.  We dropped by in the famous longganisa store of Lucban, Ekel and Ely, located at the back of the church, along A. Racelis Avenue.  Sadly, I forgot to take a picture of it.
