I think of equal importance or significance to the residents of Roxas is that river called Panay River. It remains big to this day and not as dirty and murky (at least the part that I’ve seen) as your dear Pasig River hehe.
I walked the bridge, if only for me to indeed say, I have been on that bridge. There are pedestrian lanes on both sides anyway – even has a concrete wall/barrier so vehicles won’t accidentally drag you on the road. Hmm, its mighty sturdy a bridge. I mean it didn’t even feel I was on a bridge while vehicles also crossed.
Eh, I wanted to see more of the city, like the trade center etc etc., but I was running out of time. My planned departure time for Iloilo was due. So, I continued my southward walk along Roxas Avenue until I reached the Ceres bus terminal. It’s a bit of walk from the bridge btw. Definitely more than a kilometer long but definitely too, less than 2. But I enjoyed walking amidst this part of the city (more on the commercial side) passing stores, more shops, banks, schools, more churches, a hospital, pedestrian overpass, hotels, inns and just about many other urbanities. Hey I think the bus terminal is near to a seminary. I saw signage but wasn’t able to take a shot.
And then… to Iloilo I went!
