|The Rizal Monument in Rizal Park|
The Luneta park also known as Rizal’s park is a common site for me during the college days. Having your university just around the corner, seeing how it is today after sometime is such a good feeling. I miss everything, the heat and the smoke of the city. The college students walking around everywhere reminds me of my college existence, and gosh I’m getting older.
Luneta is better today than few years back when I'm thinner, so baduy and still enjoying the college crazy life. That’s for me, it’s cleaner and more organized. My mom-in-law who was with us during the short visit told me that it was way better during the older times.
|Kilometer Zero is here|
|It was a sunny afternoon|
|No litters around that day - good job!|
|Tourist around - this will also bring them in the nearby historical locations|
|The Chinese Garden|
|This is also new :)|
|Now with food stalls around.|
|Guard on duty|
|Another new for me, not much structures before|
|The Orchidarium, also a venue for weddings|
|They remind me of the "cheering competition" days, we also loiter around like this for practice|
|Lapu-Lapu statue on the side, I guess it was under construction before :p|
|Another new statue|
Sorry for the photo overload.
Having so much politics and controversy in the city, it’s still good to see a bit of improvement and appreciate the history of the urban park presented. In the honor of our national hero Jose Rizal and our independence, the park symbolizes every Filipino bravery, courage and freedom.
Good to see you again! Maybe I should visit our University next time :D
