Spent two days in tiny Corregidor Island to see the derelict artillery guns and old ruins, and glimpse into the past lives of soldiers who served and died on the historic island.
“Corregidor Island, locally called Isla ng Corregidor, is an island located at the entrance of Manila Bay in southwestern part of Luzon Island in the Philippines. Due to this location, Corregidor was fortified with several coastal artillery and ammunition magazines to defend the entrance of Manila Bay and the City of Manila from attacks by enemy warships in the event of war. Located 48 kilometres (30 mi) inland, Manila has been the largest city and the most important seaport in the Philippines for centuries, from the colonial rule of Spain, the United States, and Japan and after the establishment of the Republic of the Philippines in 1946.” – Wikipedia
Sometimes, there’s an advantage to having YouTube ads turned on. You get to discover interesting commercials.

A flash, a beep… the motor bike carries on behind you
A bang, an explosion… cries of children’s scream
Echoes of a bloody past, a nation torn
A smile, a nod… the attendants bring your food
A call, a flourish… vendors entice you with their wares
A river, a city… Saigon…
