Re: The Murals of Winnipeg Pt 1

DrFumblefinger ·
Very informative and interesting post, TravelingCanuck! I lived in Winnipeg for about a dozen years during my teens and early 20s, and go back often to visit my elderly father who still lives there in a retirement home. I've seen some of the street art in the city, but not these very interesting murals. I note on the Valour mural photos there appears to be white stuff falling from the sky. This could, of course, happen almost any time of year in Winnipeg. Anyways, thanks for sharing and hope...

You are correct. I was there mid April and there was a light dusting of snow falling. I will be back in the fall or new year again and plan on checking out more murals for a part 2.

Thanks. What is nice is that most murals has some link to the cultural, ethnic or historical aspect of Winnipeg. They show a diverse cross-section of the life of the city over the years.

Cebu, Philippines

Lestertheinvestor ·
It was an late afternoon flight over to Cebu, with an early morning drive of 3 hours to Moalboal for the Sardine Run. There are massive schools of millions of sardines moving along in unison within the waters off the coastline of Cebu island. It is an odd sardine experience as it is not seasonal, but year-round, even though normally considered part of a migratory pattern. The dense shoals protect individual fish from predators. This type of tight group formation is particularly well...

Puerto Princesa, Philippines

Lestertheinvestor ·
It was a wild ride from El Nido to Puerto Princesa -- or more specifically, Sabang and the Puerto Princesa Underground River (mid-way in Palawan island). The is another of the UNESCO World Heritage sites (1999). You must buy a ticket the day before, with visitor entry limits so it is not over visited resulting in pollution or other negative impacts on the delicate ecosystem. The Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park is set within a park filled with monkeys and monitor lizards,...

Bohol, Philippines

Lestertheinvestor ·
A ferry took us from Cebu to Bohol. We had the opportunity to visit several land and ocean based sites on this island. We drove to the Chocolate Hills, a geological formation of nearly 1,300 conical hills spread over 20 square miles. These uniform shape and size hills (resembling giant chocolate Kisses when they are brown in the dry season) were formed by an uplift of coral deposits and then erosion by water and weathering over the centuries. They were green with only a few brown ones, even...

Manila Intramuros Tour (Philippines 2024-05)

Lestertheinvestor ·
We did a tour of the Intramuros ("Walled City"), which is the centrally located Spanish colonial period seat of government and military headquarters! Well, it was pouring with a deluge of rain, so the pictures do not perhaps do it justice! Still, we were able to walk along the fortification stone walls which were constructed in 1571. The grid pattern is used, with wide streets, plazas and public squares, all in a symmetrical pattern. Manila is a port city, so there are many buildings that...
