|Daet Heritage Center|
The Canimog Hotel is renovated from an old house that makes you more at home and offers cheaper rates. I also got to see the Daet Heritage Center which was the old local municipality and the first Rizal Monument again. Coincidentally, it was also the 91st Founding Anniversary of Camarines Norte and 7th Bantayog Festival. I first came to Camarines Norte earlier this year during the start of the Quadricentennial Celebration of the three churches. According to Wikipedia, Camarines Norte was founded after the province was divided in two: Camarines Norte and Camarines Sur.
Bantayog(n) is Tagalog for monument. The 7th Bantayog Festival celebrates the first Rizal monument. Invited as guest of honor was Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero, who also is the only politician in the opposition I admire.
