Trip to the Philippines, April 25 (Day 3), Naga

On April 24 (Day 3), we proceeded to Naga City, Camarines Sur (CamSur), to attend the 96th Annual Communication (AnCom) of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of the Philippines (MW GLP).
We were joined by Brethren from Dalisay Lodge No 14 in this first picture.
Our flight was delayed for two (2) hours. Some of the Senior Officers and PGM's of the MW GLP were on our flight.

There were welcoming dancers upon our arrival at the Naga airport.

This is a Prayer to the Virgin of Pe├▒afrancia, the Patroness of Bicol, the region were Naga City is located.
Here is a picture of s statue of Our Lady of Pe├▒afrancia found in the Naga airport.

After checking in at Avenue Square Hotel, we had lunch in a restaurant in front of the hotel.
I had my first fresh buko (coconut). It was very, very refreshing.
Even RWB George Mann liked the fresh buko.

CamSur Governor Luis Raymund (LRay) Villafuerte, Jr hosted a dinner for the AnCom participants.

L to R: RWB Doug Webster, SGW, MB; Gov LRay Villafuerte, Jr, Governor, CamSur; and MWB Chibu Uson, GM, MB.

There were a lot of entertainment numbers during and after dinner.

After the Governor's Night, we dropped by the EB2EB (Eyeball to Eyeball) of Pinoy Masons in Pili, CamSur. The EB2EB was hosted by Bro Robert Nacario, Bro Rick Nacario, Bro Oca Zapanta and Bro Rey Rull.

There was a lot of food and drinks at the EB2EB.

They even had souvenirs for those who attended.

Day 3 was another long but very wonderful day.
