I shall return ...

by whvcebu

"US General Mac Arthur said those famous words...."

...I shall return when the Philippines were occupied by the Japanese after the disaster in the Pacific during WW II. The McArthur Statue was built into the low shore line waters, a replica of the landing of U.S. Gen. Douglas McArthur when he returned to the Philippines on Oct 20, 1944. Every year the people in Leyte celebrate this event with parades, cockfights etc.
Tacloban, the capital of the island of Leyte in the Eastern Visayas, is a fairly small town. It obtained sort of a historic value through this landing by Mac Arthur's troops and later it was known as the home town of the former First Lady Mrs. Imelda Marcos, formerly Miss Romualdez, when she gained the title of a beauty queen.

People who are interested to see the wealth of the Marcos-Clan, they can get impressions by visiting the Heritage Museum.

Going to Tacloban is fastest by air plane from Manila. Busses are also going all the way from the Philtranco Terminal. Check availabitlity of seats in both directions about a day before you want to depart.

Nevertheless, those who have plenty of time, can even drive by car from Manila to Tacloban City along the Philippine National Highway using one of the most impressive and beautiful bridges in Asia, which connects like an S-shaped worm the islands of Samar and Leyte. In the city there are some simple to medium hotels, one of which is the Tacloban Plaza Hotel that has fairly neat rooms at reasonable prices.

Should anyone need legal advice (in the Philippines necessary more often than you think) there is Tess C., a good lawyer friend of mine posing in front of Mac Arthur.
