MacArthur Park

"It was the hottest day evs. We went and cleaned MacArthur Park this famous place here in my area. It's where we go when we first get here to get our companions and it got wrecked in the storm so we went and like pulled weeds? idk. It doesn't look that much better in my opinion but I got to see all my gurls!! So I loved every second of it expect that I seriously got the worst sun burn ever. But now it is just a nice California tan :) I look like I have been on vacation."

Palo is considered to be one of the most historical towns of Leyte. It is well-known as the site of Gen. Douglas MacArthur's return to the Philippines together with Philippine and American military forces after a period of exile in 1944. Hill 522, a hill located near the town center, was the site of fierce fighting between Allied and Japanese forces during the Second World War. The metropolitan cathedral of the archdiocese, located right across Palo's municipal hall, was used as a hospital for wounded Filipino and American forces. A memorial now stands at the beach site where MacArthur and his troops landed, locally known as the MacArthur's Park.
