As part of the Día del GaleónFestival, the Philippines will play host to the replica of the 17th Century galleon Andalucia on October 6–9, 2010, at Pier 13 in Manila. The 51-meter-long traveling museum created by Spain’s Nao Victoria Foundation makes use of ancient seafaring techniques with very minimal modern technology and virtually no fuel at its disposal.
At the pier, guests will be treated to festive music provided by school bands. There will also be a waiting area where guests can view an exhibit on the Galleon Trade and participate in creating mural paintings of their impressions. There will also be a creative trade fair selling indigenous arts and crafts.
For booking or any other concerns regarding the galleon, please e-mail email@example.com. The tour is free. Groups of 30 pax and above however will have to register in advance while individual guests need not reserve. No children below 8 years old, and those below 12 must be accompanied by a chaperone.

people who bought a full set of my comics brought home free stuff, like this maskot t-shirt.
julienne and leroy dropped by and asked for sketches. the guy in the middle looks envious if you ask me.
i barely saw any cosplayers, but someone did put together an impromptu "lipad" getup. here he is w…
doon naman sa aming sulok ng indie tiangge, marami akong nakilala at nakausap na mambabasa ng ang maskot at operasyon, at yung iba'y nagpakuha pa ng litrato. it was truly awesome meeting all you guys en gels. kwentuhan ulit tayo sa susunod.
talagang namigay ako ng mga tshirt, ha? eto'ng katibayan. sensya na sa mga naubusan.
