Happy New Year to All of Us - 2022



An Old Irish Blessing

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind always be at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

and rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

1873 Antique Map of Cebu Philippines


I'm sharing an old map of Cebu from my personal Cecilia Brainard Collection. It's noted as "Plano de la Ciudad de Cebu -- 1873." I hope you can make it bigger because it's really interesting.
