Chateau Du Mer Sunset from the Balcony of the Beach House, 2014, Boac, Marinduque, Philippines
Our 90-day winter sojourn this year in the Philippines, ended last week. It was a very memorable one not only because the beach house was fully booked for the Holy Week, Moriones Festival, but I was able to visit the Institute of Chemistry at the UP Diliman campus the day before our return to the US. During that visit I was able to take photographs of the DONOR WALL sponsored by the UP Chemistry Alumni Foundation. The wall listed my name as one of the DONORS in 2008. It meant that my name is there for posterity. I am indeed very glad that I made a donation to the Foundation in 2008. The selected photos are as follows: Enjoy!
