If These Walls Could Talk: Intramuros with Carlos Celdran

For those who have never even been to the walled city of Intramuros, try to visit while the walls are actually still standing. To make it an even greater and more memorable experience, take the tour with Carlos Celdran.He.is.the.bomb.

With his witty lines, anecdotes and his views on religion, politics and well history, it’s a history lesson like you’ve never seen and heard before. If my professor was as fun as this guy, I would have ACED that course.

I won’t go on and on about the whole tour here. Spoilers are just no fun don’t you think?

Wanna change how you look at Manila? Then walk this way with Carlos Celdran. Check out his website here.

Since I won’t be going into detail about the tour itself. Let me rename this blog into “IF THESE PICTURES COULD TALK”. Enjoy!

Dr. Jose Rizal’s Prison Cell

Did Jose Rizal die in vain? The people have spoken.

God forbid that history repeats itself.

Paint and ink to cover the blood, sweat and tears.

A country who believes in miracles are the laziest people.

Know your heroes.
