Scenes Around Divisoria Plaza, Cagayan de Oro Part 2

As twilight approaches, the activities get more frenzied as more stuff are unloaded from jeepneys, motorelas, or muscled in by bronze-shouldered cargadores.

Pictures were taken at about 5pm on a Friday. About the usual time the plaza starts to be converted into what the city calls the Night Cafe, a two-day weekend affair where and when the city folks set up temporary shops to sell most anything - from food, merchandise, to trinkets and pirated CDs. Simul-live shows provide the cacophony of sounds for what passes as entertainment for the masa.

A good blending of the old and new structures. Who would think that some of these buildings were built right after the end of the last world war?

A high school reunion is slated this coming December 2008. The following pictures were taken early in 2007. For those classmates who have already decided to attend, take a good look at the pictures because these will be the same images you will be seeing when you revisit your old Alma Mater, whether for the first time after so many years, or after your last visit of a year or so ago. See if you can continue to recognize the old buildings we used as classrooms, library, etc.
