Sinulog!

Obviously a few months late, but I keep showing people pictures, so I may as well put them here.
I was lucky enough to be in the Philippines for Sinulog, which I didn’t plan, but I would have had I known about it before getting there. Cebu City has the biggest celebration, with a carnival that starts in the early morning and goes on till late night. There are also fireworks and parties that last all night and everything becomes super packed.
I went down to the parade bit and tried out my new camera. The music was awesome with loads of live drummers playing quite tribal beats, because Sinulog is all about the Philippines’ pagan roots and how they all converted to Christianity after Magellan turned up packing a baby Jesus. Here’s the first lot of pictures, from the daytime parade. Imagine all this but with really good tribal drums.
