Palo Municipal Hall (Before and After)

An After look at the newly restored Palo munisipyo. As opposed to the photo below the day Yolanda (Haiyan) hit the Visayas. The photo below was right after the winds calmed down a bit and people started moving around with dazed looks.

Bridge under construction

The bridge connecting Guindapunan and Palo town proper is under construction. Once it is finished sometime in a very vague future, it will have four lanes. Big improvement from its humble beginnings as a bamboo bridge. Maybe even a rope bridge?

Meantime motorists and commuters take the diversion road at Salvacion leading to McArthur Park and the government center. Longer trip along with the big 10-wheeler trucks. Today I decided to take a look at the speed of the construction. I have to report that after almost 2 months they have finally been able to demolish the railing on one side.

The Cathedral's history on stone

I got this picture from the book Palo: Twice Capital of Leyte edited by Vicente I. de Veyra in 1971. The marker tells the historical restorations that the Cathedral underwent through the years. I'm not sure where this marker is now. I only have a vague memory of its location. I'll check when I can. (Obviously I am not a Sunday church person!)

Palo Cathedral (after Haiyan)

This is the new Palo Cathedral rebuilt after supertyphoon Yolanda (Haiyan). I've not been inside since but I've gone around the park where the mass grave for some of the Palo Yolanda victims are buried. Photo of that in future posts.

I was about to archive this blog but saw visitors still stumbling here probably through searches. I stopped posting here officially when Tacloban became a charter city.  But I still posted from time to time. So that's what I'm going to do now. Post a photo when I get one, but not anymore daily and as usual, not necessarily of Tacloban. Im keeping the name though even if a lot has changed since then. Including posting from a phone!
