"Surfing" by Burnham Lake

internet.jpgMimo Corporation, whatever it is and whoever owns it, deserves all Baguio denizens' kudos as it etches its mark on Baguio City's "pine tree of fame" for equipping Burnham Park with WiFi capability. This week's issue of the Baguio Midland Courier notes the significance of this development thus:

Burnham Park is the first premier public park in the entire country to become an "e-tourism park" following the launching of a free WiFi or wireless fidelity Internet access at the park lake last March 27.*burnham lake 02 2009

The Park forms part of the now sparse greenery that serves as the city's "lungs." Now, if only the city government will do something about the odious cigar smoke permeating not only the "alveoli" of this tourist spot but also the lungs of park goers, "surfing" by (or even on) the lake would be much more enjoyable.
