Inside the Walls of Intramuros

Still part of the Philippine class was a trip to the Intramuros, the Walled City of Old Manila. It was fun, educational and tiring. But our tour guide never gave up on us and was always on his, uhm, toes. We ended the night with a fancy dinner near the Presidential Palace.
