Tacloban City: The View from Above
Even for a native Taclobanon, viewing Tacloban City above for the first time as you fly low in circles around the city on a photoshoot can be a bit disorienting. You take stock of your bearings by locating a landmark and from there establish your position as your mind shifts to high gear resolving the issue between what you’re seeing with your eyes and what the road map in your mind tells you to see.
The whole experience, no doubt, is exhilarating.
