Belated happy Easter! This year I wasn’t able to do any run during Holy Week, and I wasn’t able to do my Visita Iglesia, but this Easter after visiting a nearby church to give thanks, I had thought of doing a quick photowalk and perhaps see at least seven churches along the way.
As expected the churches are jam packed and overflowing because it’s Easter. I wasn’t even able to get inside the church proper on my first iglesia, St. Peter Parish. From there instead of running I had opted to just take the bus towards Intramuros to visit some of the most beautiful, historic, and influential churches in the Philippines. But along the way I passed by the churches of Sto. Domingo and Quiapo—that makes for three!
After leaving Intramuros and a quick workout at my gym’s nearby branch, I just had to complete the seven churches. Along the way I passed through the city of Manila’s tourist belt and I thought it was very interesting. Finally, my seventh church for Easter.
This Lenten season gave me that much needed time with myself and my family. I still think though that the five days off are still not enough. Anyhow, I sure hope that those who had their Lenten breaks had a meaningful one! Back to regular programming folks!
