We were on our own today, Ben & Courtney went back to work.
Courtney had arranged a driver for us to take us to the oldest part of Manila. The Philippines had been colonized by the Spaniards back in the 1500’s. The history reminded us of our visits to Peru and Chile.
First stop was Fort Santiago.
We visited two churches, Manila Cathedral, destroyed in the war and rebuilt
and San Agustin Church which survived.
We went out on a pier in the harbor and got a view of the US Embassy.
After dinner, we walked through a night Market at Mercado Central. Such sights and smells.
One more day of sightseeing before we head back to the States.
