DS’s Kinder-1 Educational Field Trip Part 2: Fort Santiago

It has been a month since I did the first part of my DS’s Educational Field Trip  post. Thank Goodness that there were pictures to get hold of those precious memories during the activity.

Our second stop: FORT SANTIAGO

Located at Intramuros, Manila.

We were able to reach the place just in time for Lunch. I thought we’d pass by to a food chain where we could buy some food but I was wrong. So I decided to just had our Lunch at a restaurant inside the Fort Santiago.

The design of the place is that of an old historical look!

DS immediately run into this Cannon and immediately asked me to take a photo of him.

Kalesa Ride around the Intramuros, I just don’t know how much is the fee for the ride.

Oh that red thing is DS’s cap at the left foot of Rizal! :)

Going back down the memory lane of our country’s history is one enjoyable moment worthy to share with our kids. We’re hoping to go back again next time with the whole family as we never really got the chance to explore everything what’s inside due to time constraint. I guess I am the one who enjoyed it the most instead of DS.
