leaving Metro Manila on a 7:55am flight was quite relaxing compared to the earliest flights. it was my first time inside the new airport terminal 3 and it was quite comfortable to line up in an airport that has enough space for travelers going to the different islands of the country. the system is bettter than the old domestic airport.only a part of this large airport is being used today as some parts of the airports are still being inspected and repaired from the controversies behind its construction.we checked in two hours before our flight so i had the chance to walk around. there are few coffee food shops within the terminal.plane departed on time and the sky was cloudy in Metro Manila.when we were approaching Negros island, view shifted from buildings to lands densely covered with sugar canes.it was a sign that we were now in Negros Occidental. the plane landed around 9:04am at the New Bacolod - Silay Airport in Silay. the runway is surrounded by sugar canes.weather here was a little gloomy. this airport is about 30-45minutes from the Bacolod town center.last time i visited this place was in 1999, making this trip quite special for me. this post begins the Western Visayas series of eskapo 2.0.
