Jose Rizal Monument

Jose Rizal Monument

I feel a bit patriotic today, mainly because of the problems our country is facing these past days. Independence and democracy has always been a big thing for Filipinos, the reason why Jose Rizal was executed on this spot where this monument is standing, but until now I feel our country is still struggling to have. For a bit more on the history of this monument you can read here

Notice also the first appearance of the Philippine flag on my blog. Will create another post on that.

Hi you guys! Thanks for all the concern. I feel that the turmoil is still there, i can't say that everything is back to normal now. But atleast it's already starting to show some signs of improvement. there are already talks of lifting the state of emergency declaration, the rallies have already subsided, classes are now back to normal.

But I know the opposition has not yet given up on trying to destabilize the government, and until they do I don't think things will go back to normal. Many are still clamoring that our president resign but I don't think that's the solution, sadly I think she is still in the best position to lead this country.

You should go to in Sendai, Japan. I was there in the 1950s and enjoyed it. This man does some wonderful photography in his city.

My Japanese website is at and features the photos we took from 1953 thru 1956.

You are making an important record. You should also photograph the oldest parts of the city and the oldest buildings as those will disappear one day and only your photographs will be left.
