Accidental Tourist

An hour early for the wedding ceremony of Meg Salvacion, I decided to wander the streets of Old Marikina. It was my first time beyond the River Banks and I was pleasantly surprised the city wasn't painted blue and pink. Lining the main street are well preserved pre-World War II houses. Monuments stand on street intersections and along the Shoe Museum, their version of the Walk Of Fame.
A beautiful quaint setting for a modern bride's wedding.
