Luneta park ( Philippines)

Sharing from my English blog:

This place is very memorable for me. Back in the eighties, it was the only park, as far as I know, that was located  in the middle of Manila city. It is a place where a family can have their picnics, where lovers meets and where friends strolled and have fun. And after so many years, nothing has changed. It is still a place where one can spend week ends or weekdays  for free. Open 24 hours a day. 

And because it is a popular place to visit, especially for foreigners, I took my husband, youngest daughter and mother -in-law to this place. We were accompanied by my eldest daughter. It feels safe to have her around, especially when I have foreigners with me. :)

 

Bonding day for my eldest daughter and my youngest daughter. Here in front of Rizal monument. The older brother and the other sister were at work.

 

Located along Manila Bay, Luneta has been the site of some of the most significant moments in Philippine history. The execution of pacifistDr. José Rizal on December 30, 1896, sparked the fire of the Philippine Revolution against the Spanish colonizers, elevating the martyr as the national hero of the country

 

 

With smiles on their faces!

 

 

It was a happy and precious moment for these two, who didn't had the chance to grow up together.

My husband was busy video taking. He had a very nice experience with a beggar who sat in a wheelchair. Felt sorry for the fellow. But later ,we saw the same beggar walking . My husband was shocked. I told him that they do everything to earn money and that is life in the Philippines. Lesson learned! Do not judge the book by it's cover! he he

 

My eldest and youngest daughter ended the day by talking with each other almost the whole night. They had so many things to talk about. Childhood days and their mother:)

More in my next posts!
