Batanes V.2 - My favorite haunt

The ghost town of Songsong in a word - haunting. the ruins are a reminder of nature’s power to reclaim the sea. Learned from our guide, Manny, that some of the ruins have been demolished by the landowner to give way to new stone houses. While other countries treasure relics of the past, here the past readily gives way to the present. Can’t we do anything to preserve these treasures? In any case, catch a glimpse of these before they’re gone.
