TOUR ONE: IF THESE WALLS COULD TALK!

Walking Tour of Historic Intramuros
On its third year, its the most popular tour in the selection and a definite must for beginners in Philippine History.
Take a leisurely afternoon walk along this city's 400 year old walls and take in a humorous analysis of
Philippine art, culture, and society during the Spanish period. Ironically irreverent yet informative.

Dates:
January 17, 2004 Saturday

TOUR TWO: AMERICAN IDOL!
Walking Tour of the Historic Escolta District
Take a Sunday afternoon trip back to the swinging twenties and thirties; back to an era when the Philippines' art, society, culture, and economy were defined by the norms and ideals of our reluctant colonizer,
The United States of America. It's a chance to marvel at Manila's last surviving bits of Beaux Arts and Art Deco architecture as we analyze the past and present ways we've managed this corporation we call Philippines, Inc.
Meet in front of Santa Cruz Church at 4:00PM. Please prepare entrance fees for the Escolta Museum.
Php 50.00 for adults
Php 25.00 for students

TOUR THREE: MARTIAL ARTS!
Walking Tour of the Historic Cultural Center of the Philippines Complex
Its a tour all about the Philippines in the 1970s and the tumultous era of Martial Law, 18 inch bell-bottoms, and
Miss Universe. Its a little bit disco, a little bit New Society, and completely Imeldific. So come take a trippy trip through National Artist for Architecture Leandro Locsins finest buildings as we analyze one of the most exciting periods in Philippine history. No museum fees.

Dates:
January 24, 2004 Saturday
February 21, 2004 Saturday
3:00PM
Starting Point: Figaro Coffee Shop beside the Cultural Center of the Philippines on Roxas Blvd.
Ending Point: The Philippine International Convention Center

TOUR FOUR: ROCKING AVENIDA RIZAL
Walking Tour of Rizal Avenue to Quiapo
Rizal Avenue was Manila's main middle class shopping district until the construction of the LRT (the elevated train system) killed off its businesses. It is now part of Manila Mayor Atienza's Urban Renewal Program and has been rehabilitated as a pedestrian promenade. Some of its historic charm remains and its still the cheapest place in Manila to buy shoes, hardware, and electronics. It will be coupled with a side tour of Quiapo Church, the Bahay Nakpil, and the San Sebastian Church - a hundred year old all steel church completely imported from Belgium - among others. Its a walking tour heavy on the walking part. Dress lightly and wear practical shoes.

Dates:
January 25, 2004 Sunday
February 22, 2004 Sunday
3:00 PM
Starting point: Santa Cruz Church
End point: San Sebastian Church
