Intramuros 2013

About a week ago me and my friends made a trip to Intramuros. We went there to volunteer for Red Cross. We had a project in one of our classes, Social Teachings of The Church. We had to do something or anything to raise money for the Yolanda victims. We spent three hours sorting out clothes and then packing them.

I want to go back so that I can visit the Fort Santiago. It was even more fun with friends. I would definitely go back here. It’s a place that has so much history and keeps it within its
