The two grown-up kids in Old Manila

It’s another field trip day with my dear friend, Ehlaine. Like grade school kids, we chose to visit one of the historical places here in Manila, the Intramuros. According to some research, Intramuros is a Latin word for, “within the walls”. The construction of the defensive walls was started by the Spanish government in late 16th centuryΒ to protect the city from foreign invasions. Whoo! Thanks to Wikipedia. I’m really not a fan of history although I love visiting old structures and churches.

Once you get there, there were lots of pedicab drivers offering you to tour the place. They would offer you Php 50 for an hourΒ of tour. The rate is more pricey for foreigners.

So here are our pictures!
