We Will Always Have Angeles City

Philippine-American Friendship Day will always be a reminder of both the close relationship and love-hate tug-and-pull between our two countries. But there's no denying that the US will always have a place if not in Filipinos' hearts, at least in our consciousness. Today, let's revisit Angeles City, the place where Americans at their worst once wrecked havoc on the city's equanimity. Retired Ambassador Virgilio A. Reyes Jr. once again regales us with his story on "Angeles City's Mini-Renaissance in Heritage Restoration."

For a nostalgic trip into Manila's American history, Read Again Lou Gopal's "Yesterdays in Ermita," part 2 of his 2-part series on the city's once-genteel district. Part 2 features the American families who lived in the area.

Of course, you're also be enriched by part 1. "A Neighborhood of Yesterday: Malate/Ermita."
