Above are some pictures from my stay in Manila: Jose Rizal is the national hero of the Philippines. He was a nationalist at the end of the Spanish colonial period. He advocated for reforms and goals that ultimately led to Philippine independence and was consequently executed for what the Spanish colonial regime called rebellion. We visited his fascinating museum that was in Fort Santiago, whose wall and entrance are pictured in the middle. The far right picture is the skyline of Manila that can be seen from the bay.
Here are some pictures of the Diocesan compound. Top left is a picture of the rice fields from behind my room. Top right pictures are some green sceneries around the compound. Bottom left is a painting of the provinces in our diocese (Episcopal Diocese of Santiago). Bottom right is the building where the church and my office is.
Here is a picture of me and the beautiful sunset. And finally more rice fields! So greeeen!!! I love it!
