Kasanglayan: The Two Faces of Vigan's Mestizo District

It has been a while since I wrote a blog post. We have been very busy for the past few months--work and most especially it's our thesis year. I'd try to write from time to time as a little distraction from these busy days. And for the first blog post in a while, we'll relate it to my upcoming graduate school paper: that sense of place, heritage spaces, and the City of Vigan--a UNESCO World Heritage Site, particularly the historic core of the city called Mestizo District, also known as Kasanglayan.
