Mu­seum hop­ping

Cebu Daily News - - OPINION -

Dr. Ber­sales is the cu­ra­tor of the Univer­sity of San Car­los (USC) Mu­seum, and as one of this coun­try’s most re­spected an­thro­pol­o­gist and ar­chae­ol­o­gist, ex­pect mean­ing­ful and rel­e­vant dis­plays that de­mands at least a twohour stay. USC also pub­lishes their own books un­der USC Press and a dis­play of these books can be found on High­way Man­daue in an equally in­ter­est­ing and his­tory-in­spired cof­fee shop, PhiloSophia Li­brary Café.

There is more in this list in­clud­ing the Riza­liana Mu­seum of the Univer­sity of South­ern Philip­pines Foun­da­tion, the Basil­ica Del Santo Niño Mu­seum and the Cathe­dral Mu­seum of Cebu.

This af­ter­noon, I am tak­ing my chil­dren to one mu­seum. I still do not know where ex­actly as I have to fac­tor in hunger, tantrums and the weather in the equa­tion, but we will make this hap­pen. This is go­ing to be our first time to do this so I’m ex­cited to show a part of Philip­pine his­tory, or more specif­i­cally Cebu his­tory, to my Filipino Amer­i­can brood.

You can read about the de­tailed out­come of the trip in my blog, the URL of which you can find be­low this col­umn’s photo. Spe­cial shoutout to CDN pho­to­jour­nal­ists Junjie Mendoza and Tatay Tonee De­spojo who made me look cred­i­ble and be­liev­able, and to our edi­to­rial co­or­di­na­tor Raffy Es­co­ton who in­sisted to have this photo taken.

From Casa Ruf­folo Uno where the walls are cov­ered with crayon marks and pen­cil lines; where the cur­rent fa­vorite line is “Nanay, I pooped/peed in the toi­let”; and where the liv­ing room is an on­go­ing de­mo­li­tion project, I wish ev­ery­one a happy and sane week­end!
