I got this video presentation from i-dekkan, a loyal commenter of this blog. At a time when most Sagada photographs in the Internet are from local and foreign tourists, it is refreshing to find a recent presentation of Sagada images by an i-Sagada (someone from Sagada). The photos were taken by an alitao (uncle) who grew up in Sagada, is currently based in New Jersey, and who visited Sagada this past March. The quality of the photographs are high, and it evoked plenty of warm memories for me despite the dreary Chicago evening rain. It's hard to explain but the photographs taken by a kailyan (townmate) touches the heart in a way the other recent Sagada photo galleries fail to do. Despite the rather cheeky ending, this presentation is very well done and presents Sagada in a distinct manner that only those who grew up in the town would ever know.
