Legazpi City Mayor Noel Rosal does the obligatory ‘Palo’ selfie
Can’t go to Palo, Leyte without saying “hi” to the general.
So with his trusty gadget, Legazpi City Mayor Noel Rosal turned the camera to himself and said, “freedom!”
“Just now….after the awarding ceremonies, going home….but before that a selfie with my brother traveller gen douglas mcarthur,” Mayor Noel said on this Facebook post.
It was at this beach in Leyte that the American general fulfilled his promise to Filipinos during World War II–that of “returning” to liberate the land from the Japanese.
