Let’s Pretend We Don’t Know These Things Yet…

1. that this is the Rizal Monument.

2. that to the west of the Rizal Monument, still inside the Rizal Park, is the exact location where Jose Rizal was executed.

3. that another important marker, the fountain where Rizal used to drink from when he was writing the last chapters of Noli Me Tangere in Germany, is also located inside Rizal Park.

This trip to Rizal Park is part of my Lakbay Rizal@150. The Rizal Park, Rizal Monument, Rizal Fountain, and the site of Rizal’s execution are four of the sites included in the Lakbay Rizal @150 of the Department of Tourism.

  4. Hi Zion, nice blog you got there. Maganda nga mag-aggregarate ng kung ano ang latest. Keep it up.

    Yep, meron niyan sa Luneta at marami pang iba 😉

    Actually, I’m creating a social bookmarking site exclusively for Filipinos and Filipinos at heart. Matagal na kasi akong nag babablog hop, minsan nastrestress ako kasi wala akong masyadong nababasang good stories sa Philippine blogosphere kaya gumawa ako ng bookmarking site exlusively for blogs ng Pinoy, foreigners living here in the Philippines and anything that has to do with RP.

    Gusto ko rin maresurrect ang blogging awards, hopefully, USOSYERO award. hahaha, dreamer lang, di kasi sustainable ang mga blogging awards, sayang naman talent ng mga pinoy bloggers gaya mo.

    I have just actually submitted this post to my site,great find ! 🙂

    by the way, bakit di masyadong sikat tong place na to sa Luneta, first time kung narinig na may ganito pala sa kasulok sulokan…hahaha
