This was a trip with a friend to explore the eastern side of Bulacan Province. We wanted to look at all three water dams of the Angat River System because they are so vital to life of the people in Metro Manila. During WWII the liberation and capture of the dams was vital before the Japanese destroyed them and made Manila unlivable. So we wanted to have a look and this album is about the Angat Dam.

If you want to read about the WWII history about the liberation of the dams and so the survival of life in Manila, read this, it is a very good source:
