After a day-long planning session at the nearby Bayview Hotel, I found myself walking along the periphery of the Quirino Grandstand when I saw these murals, dried paint flaking in the wind.

A panel depicting Filipino coconut farmers.

This is my favorite part of the wall. Very amusing to see Jose Rizal at the wheel of the jeepney. Below, Andres Bonifacio hangs on at the end asking someone to please pass his fare to the driver. One guy holding a rondalla guitar asked him to come in ("Tuloy po kayo"). Anybody out there who knows when were these commissioned and by whom, and who painted them? Thanks!
