I went from Manila to Baguio for Christmas six years ago on a Five Star bus…the mountain roads are definitely something that will keep you staring out the window

I used to drive big transit style school buses to pay for my undergraduate education so I have a feel for what a bus can do. Philippine bus drivers are, um, aggressive. I remember driving up a very curvy narrow road in North Luzon and being passed uphill on blind curve by a Victory Liner bus. Another time I was a passenger on a bus there and we were approaching a curve at a brisk clip and thought, uh, ok when is the driver going to slow down? He did, but at the last second and he took the curve darned fast. Mr. Toad's Wild Ride with Tears for Fears blasting out of the buses speakers. Every time I hear "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" I am transported back to that bus ride O_O
