Hello all. As I said above, this will be my last entry since I'm coming to the end of this whirlwind exploration of SE Asia. The Philippines is a lovely country but will definitely have to come back to do it properly, nine days was just not enough. Okay, the internet cafe I'm in continues to lose connectivity so I'll just post the few pics I've uploaded and get back to update in a bit. Take care everyone. Thank you for being interested in my journey and traveling with me 😊 Love Cheryl

These are converted jeeps left by the Americans and are used like public buses. Some jeepneys were incredibly redone.

The moat inside the walls of Intramuros was filled in and is now used as a golf course. You can see the walls still stand.

In Cebu city, I arrived during Sinulog, a festival, and there was something going on every day. This day was a parade of elementary school kids.

My guide book says people line up for hours to pray in front of La Nina inside the church. I saw the line and it was a long one.
