This our last stop of the tour, and unfortunately Carlito's was in Manila working on his exhibit in Megamall. BTW, his house is practically an exhibit of most of his works and I captured some more photos of his steel sculpture. Like an exhibit, It would be great if the host or somebody would be there to tour you around the exhibit to give you the stories behind the masterpieces. I posted earlier a mini-series on Carlito's Workshop:
Carlito's Workshop 1-- Intimidating House with Surprisingly Hospitable Host!
Carlito's Workshop 2 --Photogenic House with an Outstanding Garden :)
Carlito's Workshop 3 -- Carlito's Coffee
The only difference now, is that recently he is charging P100 as an entrance fee to Carlito's Workshop. Worth it if he is around to entertain you personally.

Going back to Manila was so much traffic that it took us almost 3 hours just to arrive (which should have just been less than 2 hours). In times like these, you need a good travel song good for the last song syndrome. For us, we ended the trip with a continuous loop of the theme song of the tour: Ang Panday Theme Song: "Makita Kang Muli".....
