Photo Post – Fort San Pedro in Cebu
This is just a random building that I spotted outside the fort. It didn’t surprise me to see “fuck you” written on the galvanized tin. This phrase seems to be all the rage amongst young people in the Philippines. I’m often surrounded by teenage boys in Internet cafes playing online games, and they all scream “Fuck you!” at each other as they play the game and attack each others’ characters. Unfortunately, young people have also started to make a game out of shouting “fuck you” at foreigners. I don’t think they realize quite how offensive it is.
A sign at Fort San Pedro said that the fort had been damaged heavily by the earthquake and then by typhoon Yolanda. Indeed, there were lots of sections where the walls had crumbled. Some sections were roped off and the stone had been sorted into groups as they began to rebuild the walls.
