Unprotected Heritage

In 1996 I visited Vigan and saw how the brick buildings were being repaired by cementing them which made me felt so sad that there was little effort to preserve them. Vigan became a UNESCO heritage site and I am hoping the cultural preservation would continue. 

Similarly the churches in the Bicol region retained their grandeur with the colorful hue of bricks and this sight depressed me.
