old house


This is in Real St. inside the Intramuros and what you're seeing is a typical house built during the spanish colonization... the bahay na bato... or house of stone. the foundation or the first floor is made of stone but the second level is made of wood with big windows and of course with veranda or balcony... i guess it was designed that way because of the hot weather here in the philippines. Sadly these type of structures are fading away...

I like the older home styles too. It is nice that some are still left. I like your photograph of them.

Thank you for your visits to my blog.

I have good news:

The three baby robins are on their way to Meet the World. I miss them already. It was quite an emotional experience for me.

Beautiful design. They are made into apartments now? I love the street made of stones as well.

This kind of structure and environment really gives back the memories of our glorious past.
