After 1 hour of conversation, we able to settle the cost and what to visit.

Then we go back to our room and take a shower, after that we went out to check the Lemon Pie House, we ordered lemon pie (your visit to Sagada is not complete if you will not try to taste their popular lemon pie). The taste is good and we also ordered egg pie which is better than lemon pie. (1 box of lemon pie is 180 pesos).

Then we walked and checked some souvenirs and the cheaper price but best quality. Then we checked-in in a bar (I forgot the name, they played reggae songs and with Bob Marley photos in their wall) to drink one bottle of San Miguel beer light. After that, we went back to our rooms and take a rest for tomorrow tour in the cave.
