During our short trip to Calamba, Laguna, we visited one of its historical sites, the Rizal Shrine in Calamba City. The latter served as a home to the country’s national hero, Jose Rizal and his family during the latter part of the 1800s. Unfortunately, the original Mercados’ residence was destroyed by the wars that happened in the history and, thus, the current house built in the land is a replica of the house. Nonetheless, the only remaining property of the Mercados that was not ruined by the wars is the well that the hero’s family used and is laying beneath the pail illustrated in the photo above.
Amusement parks produce this kind of happiness that cannot be described by words.
Reflections during our documentary shoot.
Guess: This photo is taken inside a famous amusement park. What amusement park is this?

This big “banga” found across the street of the Rizal Shrine is located inside a park that pays tribute to the origins of the city of Calamba. Written outside this “banga” are the different barangays found in Calamba City.
