Jo Finally, towards the end of the Lakbay Amigo tour, we are in here. John and I have been hearing about Bacolod from Joel and Mario forever. We drive from the airport with Joel’s brother Spanky through Silay with its beautiful old houses.
You could make a movie here. And in fact we drive by two of the houses used in ORO PLATA MATA, where young Joel Torre and Ronnie Lazaro shine. We visit the excellent Bacolod Museum and we learn a lot. Will John Sayles be inspired? Stay tuned.
