Travel: Binondo, Manila (Through My Lens)
Binondo is an enclave in Manila primarily populated by Chinese immigrants who have decided to live in the Philippines.
“Prior to Makati, Binondo was the main center for business and finance in Manila for the Chinese, Chinese mestizos and Spanish Filipinos. Before World War II there was a bustling banking and financial community which included insurance companies, commercial banks and other financial institutions from Britain and the United States.” — wikipedia
Binondo was also the birthplace of St. Lorenzo Ruiz, a mestizo de sangley who would later become the First Filipino Saint.
UP Photography Class Batch 25 has been putting off its 2nd photowalk since March 2010. Six months after, the Binondo walk finally pushed through. Photowalk was open to UP Photography Batch 25 and friends.
