    I like how the concept of old incorporates so much history, experience and beauty. Thank you for reminding us of this.

    That's defenitely old yes. Not the people though ;-)

    Philippines hey? We were nearly going there in January 2005. We had planned for 2 weeks in Malaysia first, then 2 months in Boracay-Mindoro. Then we got pneumonia both of us and the tsunami came. So we cancelled. To high risk for getting another disease, we weren't well enough. Maybe we'll go some other year. It's a beautiful country as I can see from all the pics!

    Oh wow! How cool is that? I think old churches are some of the greatest buildings to explore! Looks like your group had fun! Great specimen for our "old" photo hunt!

    Wow - how awesome. Are there a lot of underground cemeteries? Or this just a very special one. Thank you so much for sharing this unusal place.

    Something about an underground cemetary seems spooky - but cool.
