Tacloban at dusk: the view from Calvary Hill
A relatively new park development designed for devout Catholics, Calvary Hill is a Stations of the Cross route where many Catholics go to pray and do penance during Holy Week.
I can understand now how physically strenous it is to go up the winding steps. It is not for the faint-hearted and certainly not for those physically unfit.
It’s a long, arduous climb up. But at each station, one can pause to catch one’s breath aside from reciting prayers.
Upon reaching the top, one is justly rewarded though with a magnificent view of Tacloban City.
We went up Calvary Hill yesterday at a little past 4 o’clock in the afternoon. We wanted to catch the sunset view and how Tacloban City looks like at dusk…
