The town of San Diego described by Dr. Jose Rizal in Chapter 10 of the Noli Me Tangere is a microcosm of a typical Spanish pueblo or town. An interactive video presentation of the miniature San Diego comes to life in the Spanish period National Historical Institute.

I’m not sure what museum this picture was taken from (or was it at the National Historical Institute).

A brief note was written at the back of the picture.

Things to know in choosing a hotel

If you have the luxury of time and money, there is no better way to take a breather from all the stress-related work than traveling. One of the major things you have to consider, of course, will have to be accommodations. You certainly wouldn’t be crazy enough to spend your well-deserved vacation in a rundown hotel.

Check out our hotel experience post here. Thanks!

When choosing a hotel to stay in, you should think about location. It’s important that the hotel is close enough to tourist attractions and specialty shops. It’s best if it’s just a stone’s throw away from the beach.

Amenities are definitely important. Before booking a particular hotel, ask around for referrals or search the web for reviews or ratings. Decide if it’s essential for you to have a fitness center or wi-fi access, for instance.

Careful planning is always the key to a worry-free vacation. Try to plan ahead of time, and you’ll be able to better enjoy those pina coladas on the beach.
