Mementoes of Jose Rizal

How time flies! It’s been two years since we visited Jose Rizal Shrine at Fort Santiago in Intramuros, Manila. We were like walking through the glorious past of our national hero by seeing the mementoes and artworks inside glass boxes.  We didn’t see any musical instrument like a jimmy page les paul encapsulated in one of those glass boxes, but there are several manuscripts of books and poems for all generations to see. There could be a music sheet in one of those manuscripts for Jose Rizal can do or write about anything during his time.
