A Place Called Mayoyao

it's distance can fool a newcomer. it looks so near. but to get to the town proper, the vehicle must pass cakey and clayey roads when wet. in 2015 and 2016, i was still privileged to see its towering hills and narrow cliff roads.  but today, these were no more. the mountains on my left have been shaved considerably to give way to wider roads. and soon, the elusiveness and disguise of Mayoyao will be no more.
