For your info, those are indeed Igorots. But they do it for economics. Iam an Igorot myself, and if you want totake photos of Igorots, drop by UD Diliman. there are alot of us over there.

Baguio consists of about 60% Igorots. visit www.cordilleraonline.com or baguiocityonline.com to see us. We despise people from the lowlands who do not know who the Igorots are. There are more than a milion of us. Alot are professionals in Manila, abroad (google mo bibaknets), a lot in the IT.
