Photo Of The Day: Skyline of San Juan City

Although not officially designated as such, the city of San Juan could also be called the “Town of Philippine Presidents.” Four of the last nine presidents since the country became a republic in 1946 were official residents of San Juan when they assumed office. They were the Macapagal pére et fille, Diosdado Sr. (1961–1965) and his daughter Gloria (2001–2010); Ferdinand Marcos (1965–1986); and Joseph Estrada (1998–2001).

I snapped this Photo of the Day last December when I was crossing the bridge at MRT Santolan Station, going home right after leaving the office.
