It was October 1944 when Gen. Douglas MacArthur fulfilled his promise to the Filipino people. Two and a half years after he left his now famous vow "I Shall Return". In commemoration of that historical return, a life size shrine was built in Palo, Leyte, Philippines.
Too bad we were in a hurry to the airport when I snapped this photo last May 2009. I would have wanted to take a better shot. Yes, the shrine is visible from the highway en-route to Tacloban City.
And now I too, have returned....
