I couldn’t resist the theme over at Ailsa’s Where’s My Backpack: Horizons. Here’s my take on the theme:
Rizal Park, Manila
Located in the old city of Manila, this Park marks the place where the Philippine national hero Dr. Jose Rizal was executed by the Spanish colonists in the late 1800’s, and where he was later laid to rest. Rizal’s execution sparked the battle(s) for independence from Spain. Now a popular tourist destination, the sprawling park also provides respite from the crowded urban scenery.
