MY PHILIPPINES: Rediscovering San Pedro Street, Davao

The lakwatseras are a bit embarrassed when Journeying James on the 5TH DAY OF HIS MINDANAO CHALLENGE finally set foot in Davao and we're drawing a blank where to bring him. It was his first time here and all we could come up with are stops that are dictated by our stomachs.We brought him to our personal favorite Italian (!) restaurant- SPIRALE in Damosa and a uniqely Davao coffee shop - Blugre with its signature Durian coffee but we wished to have shown more of the city to him.


So last Monday, in an effort to explore and know this city more, we joined the Davao Bloggers on their photo walk along the busy streets of San Pedro and as always, stuffing these lakwatseras faces (well, just the other half actually, just guess which one), with delicious and dirt cheap (no pun intended) street side delights was the highlight of the activity.










Visited Osmena Park, Davao City Museum (picture taking is not allowed in the museum) and San Pedro Cathedral as well. The cathedral, right across the city hall is the oldest church in the city but a service was on going and we felt it disrespectful to snap photos.
