Paving stones

My favorite road in the Ateneo de Manila University. Except in very special circumstances, vehicles are not allowed on it.

I can see why. I wish more places had brick or cobblestone.

I guess that this road is usually more populated than this! The place looks very pleasant and green, a very good thing that it was pedestrianized...

Are they acacia trees? The school grounds almost feels like Silliman U. in Dumaguete.

The place looks deserted,must be the semestral break!

I love how the trees lined up and branches hanging, almost forming like a canopy.

I like both the paving blocks and the beautiful trees. No wonder it's a favorite.

I agree with you. It is a very special street. I wish more streets were off limits to cars and more pedestrian friendly.

I love stone walkways like this one. It must have been quite a lot of work to lay it though!

Happy Friday!!

The trees with their reaching branches and shadows are great too.
