Shoes, Saints & Strangeness: Exploring Marikina

This week we have been staying mostly within Marikina and exploring it more. Among the highlights were visiting Marikina City Footwear Museum, where local shoemaking and a dictator's wife's seized shoe collection were featured, seeing Our Lady of the Abandoned Parish, the second oldest church in the city, being amazed by the world's largest pair of shoes, bowling badly, walking along Marikina River and seeing many statues, street art and Christmas decorations.
