Did you know that the province of Abra has their own Adam and Eve? Angalo and Aran are believed to be the first man and woman of Earth, similar to Adam and Eve, in Abra Mythology. They were giants who roamed Ilocos region in search for each other. As Angalo continue his endless search for his love his footfalls became heavier because of lonely heart thus leaving foot prints on the region, he sometimes even knelt down to drink water from the springs where he left his footprints.
