Once Upon a Time........ Part II

The Churches of the North
I was always interested to see the old buildings of any town so when our vacation plans were finalized I told Ed that we should go to the North because it is noted for its old churches and buildings. And I was not disappointed. Please forgive me if I couldn't remember some of the churches' names. St. Augustine Church survived an earthquake while San Guillermo Church was almost buried in lahar from the Mt. Pinatubo eruption. The way bricks were layered and cemented together to hold the structure would seem crude by today's building standards but anyone will be amazed simply by seeing and feeling the strength within each block.

Wow! We haven't been to that part of the North. We have been planning to go there for the last 2-3 years but up to now, the plan still stays a plan.

Thanks for sharing your experiences and photos. The waves are big po, even during summer?

Take care! :)
