Trip to Legaspi

These are some of the pictures I took on our trip to Legaspi. There are a couple pictures just showing the thick foliage along the road side.

Here is a picture of a volcano that had blown it's top off, with a smaller volcano right next to it.
I could have taken more but the driver of the car we were following was crazy he was driving so fast on these tiny two way roads and was passing everything in sight in front of him. I can truly say that the drive down here was not fun or relaxing. I thought Lee had us dead more than once. But we survived and here we are safe and sound, at least until tomorrow and we once again drive the tiny roads. The worst thing is that the people walk along the sides of these tiny roads which are just the size to fit two small cars, no pedestrians, and the dogs just go in the road and stand and you can pull right up to them and honk and they just move as slow as possible.

American Cemetary

These are the pictures of the American cemetary where the service men killed in World War II lie. There were thousands of names but most of them are just names, the remains are not here. Only a few names had a special button next to it saying the remains had been found and identified. The grounds are owned and kept by the USA. They are beautiful, as you can see.

In Manila

This is the first hotel condo here in Manila.
This is the class we had graduate from the career workshop in the North when we were working with the Costley's. The student's were so proud of their diplomas.
