PAETE (Pi-tè). A town in Laguna province of the archipelago-republic of the Philippines (population: 21,809), situated between 14 degrees and 16 degrees N and 120 degrees and 122 degrees E, about 113 kilometers southeast of Manila in the island of Luzon.
Paete lies at the foot of the green Sierra Madre mountains looking northwest halfway across the water towards Mabitac hill peninsula and on to what seems to be infinity itself. One does not see Manila from here. The silvery water is not the China Sea, but simply Laguna de Bay (Lake of Ba-i), the largest lake in southeast Asia.
Come in, meet the people of this most interesting place who are conscious of their history and proud of their cultural, religious and artistic heritage. You will find some of us eccentric, but that's because having been raised in a near-bohemian tradition, we are never overly concerned with appearances.
