All I ask is a tall ship...

This model ship costs P5,000. Unpainted ones sell for P1,300. Not a bad price, actually. And we haven't even started haggling yet.

Some itinerant vendors were peddling these galleons last week. I thought they were part of the Visayas Area Business Conference, but it turns out they were here just by coincidence. Not even locals, they came all the way from Guimaras, next door to Iloilo. Hmmm...one other place to visit. I sure would like to see how they build 'em.

Additional tidbit: it takes them around two weeks to finish building a ship.

  1. I can see the trees by the boulevard as background… Gosh, they’ve grown. What a lovely sight.

    wish I'd seen one when I was last there.

  4. Hi, Z: I'll post more pictures of the trees in the coming days...and weeks. He he, all for Chaz's little sister.

    Hi, V: thanks for dropping by. The ships are made in Guimaras. I'll ask around when I make a trip there.
