Night in Manila, Philippines

It was a really short visit to Manila, these were about the only non-hotel and non-office photos I took! A rainy night in Manila...

What's MFHRI? Manila Floating Hotel and Restaurant :-)
This ship is docked at Pier 15, in the port area of Manila near the hotel relic that is known as the Manila Hotel.

José Protasio Rizal Mercado y Alonso Realonda
(June 19, 1861 – December 30, 1896, Bagumbayan)

He was a Filipino polymath,
nationalist and the pre-eminent advocate for reforms in the Philippines during the
Spanish colonial era. He is considered the Philippines' national hero a
nd the anniversary of Rizal's death is commemorated as a holiday called Rizal Day.

Rizal's 1896 military trial and execution made him a martyr of the Philippine Revolution.
