I still picture Session Road that way in my head sometimes. Way before the crowds, Korean English Language Students, SM, etc.

Note the other Indian bazaar on the left -- Valiram. Going further down Session Road, after Pohumull's was, I think, Pines Theater, then Bheroomull's, and finally, the classiest of the lot, Assandas. And someone give me a microscope! I could be one of those window shoppers! I never had enough money to buy anything from the bazaars! (Around the corner, at the foot of Session Road, would be Rose Bowl, where--this is a plug--St. Louis Boys High class of 1963 will be having a reunion!) Look at that Beetle, almost as old as Baguio itself! (well, ok, the present Beetle came after WWII...) And while Mike del Rosario is a dear friend, I certainly miss that old bakery (and elegant building!) at the corner of Mabini and Session where his McDo now reigns. Further down lower Mabini was of course my childhood's paradise -- Fred's magazine store, DC and Marvel comics for hire at 5 centavos for 2 (kapag bago) or 3 (kapag medyo luma na). And finally, look at the short-chassis jeepney--3 people on each of the two facing seats, the way it was meant to be for the old MacArthur (or was it Eisenhower) jeep. Not a sign of the humongous, articulated 50-passenger jeepneys we have today. Fare was 5 or 10 centavos to any point in Baguio, 50 centavos for a "short trip" anywhere, i.e., sarili mo ang buong dyip, que isa ka lang o ang buong pamilya.
