We departed for the Philippines Stock Exchange where the group was met with Mr. Jay Penaflora who briefed the group on the history and workings of the stock exchange. After Mr. Penaflora’s presentation, there was a 30 minute question and answer session followed by picture taking.
We then had a “city tour” of old and new Manila. This included: the US WWII Cemetery, Forbes Park, New Manila, Makati, Fort Santiago, Casa Espanol, and San Agustin Church. Everyone appears to be in good spirits and health. Tomorrow finds us traveling across Manila Bay to the Island of Corregidor, where the US Forces led by General Douglas MarArthur held off the Japanese invaders in 1942.
