I returned to the Manila North Cemetery in May this year after visiting the place few times between 2006 and 2008, I just wanted to come back and see what might have changed. I did not take a lot of photos but spent more time talking to some children and adults living there.
The photo above was taken using my iPhone 4s when I saw the little boy playing on a tomb. The cemetery was both his home and his playground.
I have written about this place and my experience when I first went there in another blog entry, so I will not write about it anymore here. If you have missed that one, here it is, Sharing Space with the Dead.
