intrmuros

Short visit to Intramuros, the old city of Manila.

Intramuros was the beginning of Manila, the capital of Phillipine. It is a beatiful old city with a strong influence of Spain architecture. Phillipine was once part of the Spain colony. The name Phillipine was taken from the name of Spanish King : King Phillip. 

Beautiful and scary. The history behind is kind of creepy to me. Similar to another colony story, there was this unfairness treatment between the local and the western people. Murder, disaster, war. The memento of each moments are left in Intramuros.

If you have a chance to visit this place, I strongly recommend you to take a history tour guided by a funny guy named Carlos Celdran. He is so hilarious, energic, creative and smart. I enjoy the tour very much and for the first time in my life, history could be so fun :) I wish there is that kind of guy in Indonesia. Hehehe.
