ang kongreso

It was my first visit to the Republic of the Philippine’s House of Representatives compound in Quezon City. After providing support services to several attendees at a hearing at the Ramon V. Mitra building there, I took some pictures of the Session Hall and its surrounding greenery.

This view greets you as you go up the driveway.

Inside the lobby, color photographs of all the members of the 14th Congress are mounted on two stands; another exhibit displays personalities and scenes from the country’s political past. Sadly, the latter display is dusty, worn, and scratched; surely our nation’s Lower House, its visiting citizens, and guests deserve something better?

This marker is in front of the flagpole.

Everywhere, pockets of green refresh the eyes. How blessed we are to live in a country where the foliage is rich and lush.
