* sentinel lantern: one of the many Christmas lanterns
put up in the city near the makeshift stores
* Tanauan Christmas tree put up near the old city hall
Our next stop was the city of Tanauan in Batangas. After some banking matters, it seemed only fit to pass by for a while in this city. The road leading to the church and the old city hall was occupied by many recideras selling goods ranging from clothes to food to toys to household materials.

I like the liveliness of the people of Tanauan. The place of what could be the city plaza was crowded with young people, families with their children, and practicing dancers. Too bad there were no local delicacies to be bought except for the usual Christmas rice snacks.
