Baguio City Hall

Walking back to our hotel after breakfast on the last day of our weekend getaway, this was all I could glimpse of the Baguio City Hall because of the profusion of trees in front of it.

Baguio City Hall
Off to one side of the City Hall was another white building with a green roof—the color combination that I have always associated with Baguio's buildings. I managed to find a sign identifying it as Baguio Central School, and when I searched on the web for it, I learned that it is a public school built in 1923, destroyed during WWII and rebuilt in 1949. It is now considered a heritage school and was renovated in 2004.

Baguio Central School
Between Baguio City Hall and Burnham Park was a tiny park dedicated to Philippine national hero Dr. Jose P. Rizal. The old man sitting in the shade at the bottom of the monument was totally unmindful of the fact that I was standing there taking pictures. BAGUIO CITY SERIES #8

le mémorial est immense, si on le compare avec le monsieur assis.
j'aime la première photo, elle donne quelque chose de mystérieux au city hall.

the memorial is huge when compared with the gentleman seated.
I like the first picture, it gives something mysterious at city hall.
