the drivers were shock every time we ask if we can ride on top of the jeepney even when there's no one inside it yet.our last day in the island of Marinduque was a stopover at the town of Sta Cruz, East of the island. like most of our trips there, i again took the best spot. the topload.it was so hot that day. so just imagine staying on top for more than an hour from Boac to Sta Cruz. but with good view and the great experience of riding on top of the jeepney is really something one should try.we passed by hills and small villages with areas having zigzag yet nothing really extraordinary to see along the way. best to do topload in this island is from Balanacan port to the town of Boac. i highly recommend this.we reached the town just in time, tired but excited. the town of Sta Cruz as they say has a bigger population than the capital town of Boac. Sta Cruz has more modern structures than the rustic town of Boac. but they are equally silent and unbusy. the town area of Sta Cruz is on top of a hilly ground. the people are so friendly here. engaging them in conversation made that tiring day beautiful. genuine Filipino hospitality.a walk around the town is a nice experience but with the heat, we decided to just drop by the church. that to be featured on my next post.
