Rizal Park , Ermita, Manila-Philippines
It was a hot and sunny weather , when small number of postcard collectors met at the historic Rizal Park or Luneta. The event was organized by Ms. Willa Stock – an active blogger, postcard , stamp and letter collector.
In fact , the event was just posted at the Postcrossing Philippines facebook event page last January 25. Due to our hectic schedules- (There are many events which overlapped ) few managed to come. I had to skip a heritage talk /art sketch walk in Quiapo ( Bahay Nakpil -Bautista ) earlier . We were later joined by Ms. Abigail Kho – a new found convert to our hobby ( postcard and stamp collecting ) .

I managed to skip work in the afternoon ( I had a work on saturday ) just to meet fellow collectors. Luneta is very accessible to all of us. We started the afternoon walk and finding a suitable place ( near the chess area) where Ms. Willa Stock started the short swap meet and on-the spot raffle.
