Today is the first day of 2013! A perfect day to go sight-seeing since the roads are clear of any traffic. It kinda felt weird driving around. We’ve grown so accustomed to bumper to bumper traffic with constant horn honking but today it literally felt like a ghost town – no cars, no people, no noise.
First stop: Green Belt – a series of 6 malls (all closed) surround a beautiful park and chapel
Next stop – Luneta Park which pays tribute to national historical icons of the Philippines.
Next stop – The Mall of Asia where we got to do some ice skating (as ironic as that sounds)
Next stop – the Ark Avilon Zoo
Random facts were posted around the zoo.
Last stop: Tiendistas for dinner and to watch a Filipino band
Tomorrow is the first day at the build site!!! We can’t wait!
