Philippines

Well, it may not be possible to get map-cards from all the 7107 islands in the Philippines, but Marie definitely took care that i have all the island-map-cards she could find :) Thanks a lot Marie!



Here you can see the island of Luzon, which is the largest and most economically and politically important island in the Philippines and one of the three island groups in the country.
It includes a number of islands, including Mindoro, which you can see on the card as well...its south of Luzon.

Quezon City, the former capital and most populous city in the Philippines, is also located on the island of Luzon. (now, Quezon City rings a bell of something..:-)))))))

Lets see the pictures on the card now, starting from the left first:

- Paoay Church, Ilocos N.
- White sand beach and azure blue waters of Pagudpud......mmmmmmmmmmmmmm
- Vigan, a Spanish heritage city
- Hundred Islands National Park, Pangasinan

on the right side:

- Century old Banaue Rice Terraces
- Crater of Mt. Pinatubo, Pampanga
- Taoist Ma-Cho Chinese Temple in San Fernando, La Union
- Mayon Volcano, Albay

that crater picture looks amazing!
