Intramuros Manila

Copyright © June 2013

Last Sunday, my friends and I visited Intramuros (also known as the Walled City) and Fort Santiago in Manila. That visit is supposed to be a drawing session that turned into a photo session ~ ish and went into a freaking walkathon. Yup that's right we just walked. We arguably turned down every pedicab and kalesa ride offered to us there. Which by the way, we totally regretted after realizing how far we walked across Intramuros. There was even a moment when I just want to stop right where I am and sit on the ground. The weather made it even worse. It was so darn hot when we got there and it rained in the afternoon. We can see smoke coming from the ground like a really hot grill got poured on with water.

Anyways, it was fun. :) I got to take photos of the place. Buildings, which I don't really like taking photos of. But the (ancient) old architectural designs from the Spanish era made it a little interesting for me. I also got to take photos of flowers :) which I enjoy the most.

The gals I went with ~

My friends and I are planning to come back. After all, we didn't get to see every historical mark there is to see. And next time, we'll definitely ride the kalesas and/or pedicabs
so we won't get super exhausted like the last time.. :)
