andrecityKjerrimyr Rodrigo Andrés is a happy 17 year-old Filipino political science student from Ateneo de Manila University who has a very peculiar interest in urban planning, politics, geography, history, and cartography. A staunch advocate for sustainable urban development, he believes in planning on a very big scale and in the possibility of Manila as the best city in the near future. He lives in the vicinity of the beautiful capital and travelling to different places (most of them historical) has drawn him into a variety of urban spaces and the people who live with it.

I’m currently taking this awesome subject for my summer semester. I severely panicked during enlistment because there were only 12 slots available. Anyway, a while ago we had the pilot class and names like Plato and Foucault were already brought up — and I have a reading by Heidegger (Building Dwelling Thinking). It felt like one of my political theory classes and philosophical questions like “Is the city the negation of the province or vice versa? and “Is the city a necessary evil?” were posited by one of our teachers (I’ll be having a total of three!) enthusiastically. Probably I am not the only one majoring or minoring in Philosophy in the class. Hopefully I would really enjoy and learn from this subject in relation to my fascination of Philippine cities (especially Manila) and to my political viewpoint of urban areas.

Another stupid government official who is clearly a sheltered man and has not yet really experienced the quotidian hell of Manileño urban transportation.

The highlight of yesterday was the re-opening of the Manila Cathedral, the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Manila. It was closed for two years for retrofitting against earthquake and other improvements. The TV screens were quite tacky, but the experience of the re-opening was a holy one. There were many people, surprisingly. I met with the other members of HCS-Y (Heritage Conservation Society - Youth) although I had to leave early.

I also went to to San Sebastian, my favorite church. It is a neogothic basilica and the only all-steel church in Asia. It is said that Gustave Eiffel might have been the one behind the design of the church.

Yesterday, before going to the re-opening of Manila Cathedral, I went for a 13-km soul-searching throughout Manila (Quiapo, Sta. Cruz, Binondo, Ermita, Intramuros). I enjoyed the sights and saw the familiar sights. It was an afternoon full of reflections and awe.
