Since my January 19th Philippines Air flight from Manila to Cebu was not leaving until 9 PM, I decided to focus on visiting just the Intramuros area and Rizal Park.
The Intramuros area has remnants of the walled city and cobbled streets originally built by the Spanish conquerers. As I visited the Manila Catheral I could still see signs and pennants that remained that advertised Pope Francis' visit to Manila where he spoke to millions over at Rizal Park.
The Memorare-Manila 1945 is a memorial to the over 100,000 innocent men, women, and children who died during the World War II battle between the Japanese and Allies that basically destroyed all of Manila as well.
I then backtracked to the domestic airport for my flight to Cebu using the light rail, jeepney, and taxi. This time not only were the jeepneys were colorful but also this tatooed driver near my jeepney.
