Yesterday, as I spoke via Skype to my homeschoolers back home, they got excited when another postcard came from Japan. thanks to Clarissa for sending another one. I will post on that next week. also, one postcard we sent to the USA was sent back to us because my girl misspelled the address. But we sent another one the next day and hopefully it has reached its destination by now. Seems like this Postcard Exchange Project has got into our system already. Yay!!!
I had the chance to go out of the campus last week, and enjoyed window shopping at National Bookstore where they had a sale of colorful postcards. As I mentioned in my previous posts, I'm currently enrolled in an MA in Education program in Manila for 2 months. The program is very intensive, thus explains why I seldom blog these days. I'm just glad that I was able to buy postcards to share here at Postcard Exchange meme and hopefully mail them your way soon!!!
Here are some postcards that feature different festivities in the Philippines.
|Tuna Festival is an annual week long festival held every 4th week of September,|
in General Santos City, highlighting the significant role of tuna industry.
It showcases Parada sa Dagat (Sea Parade) and street dancing and float parade.
The Philippines is a beautiful country with very colorful culture. I have only one more month here and I hope to get around Manila sometime when class schedules allow (hoping... hoping.. hoping...).
