As quoted on www.corregidorisland.com :
"Corregidor is a small rocky island in the Philippines about 48 kilometers west
of Manila which is stragetically located at the entrance of Manila Bay. This
island fortress stands as a memorial for the courage, valor, and heroism of its
Filipino and American defenders who bravely held their ground against the
overwhelming number of invading Japanese forces during World War II. "
This tour was (as I expected) very pro-american military similar to the city tour that we took a few weeks ago. We made an observation that it would be really uncomfortable to be a Japanese tourist on our tour----remember Pearl Harbour Wes??? Same thing.
Speaking of Pearl Harbour - Corregidor is the home of one of the two monuments that the US built to honor service men on the Pacific Ocean - the other being at Pearl Harbour - so I've actually seen both....that is cool.....
I like this pic - mainly because it has the crum
Here are the statues up close!
And a pic of a sculture symbolizing the eternal flame.
I think the Philipinos are the "king" of recycling - -this garbage can is made from an old tire!
A view from the restaurant.......
