MURALES to meditate
This research, which began in 1996 and periodically expanded, features the Philippines, (Visaya islands), located in the southern part of this archipelago. In various cities there are streets on whose sides, on large concrete panels, murals are represented, which have as their common theme the ecology and the protection of the nature of our planet. Unknown artists, with beautiful works of art, narrate the destruction of what each of us should care about; in the hope that posterity will enjoy what is still left and which has not yet been destroyed by selfishness and belief in the God of money, through the mind and hand of man. From those parts of the globe, this sensitivity is noticeable; people who live by nature in nations that compared to industrial ones, in many respects, are in the background, but who know how to give, through these murals, a life lesson to those who, thanks to their strength and technology ... and their selfishness, pretend not to see, or do not feel this need to safeguard what is still good for us to preserve:
that is, the nature in which we all live, and to ensure that all that we can still enjoy today does not remain for the posterity only a faint photographic memory.

Sinulog is a party held in the Philippines on the third Sunday of January. It is a dance ritual in honor of the miraculous image of the Santo Nino. (Spanish name of the Bambin Gesu) The form of dance that takes place, is to take two steps forward and one back with respect to the cadence of the sound of the drums. This movement is inspired by the trend of the particular current of the Pahina river of Cebu ( Sulog), so in Cebuano this type of dance is called Sinulog. More than the meaning of the word itself, and the importance of dance. Historians attribute to the Sinulog a pagan origin and for a long time the connection between the present and the past of the country related to pagan Christianity when already before the arrival of the Portuguese navigators in the distant 1521, who evangelized these lands, these dances were already 'performed by the local natives in honor of their idols.
This event ... which has now taken on the characteristics of the Festival,
it winds through the streets of Cebu until the evening and involves hundreds of confraternities with their colorful costumes and tens of thousands of figures who, scornful of fatigue, dance for hours and hours, involving the spectator in a whirlwind of percussion sounds and colors.

A trip to the Philippines must not be aimed only at diving in the seabed (beautiful and full of colors) of this archipelago made up of 7107 islands. The Philippines are similar to what a Latin European culture can be, having the common Spanish denomination, by faith given the predominance of the Christian religion since when in 1521 Magellan put his feet on the island of Mactan in the southern part of the Philippines (Visaya island) . So the uses and customs of this people are similar to ours as you can see by walking through the streets of the city of this huge archipelago.
