Week 9, 2012: Aboard the MV Logos Hope

I met old friends from college last Saturday. We had breakfast at an old restaurant along Ongpin Street called Saludo's.

Week 9, 2012: Ludo's, Binondo, Manila

Some of us went to Logos Hope, a ship with lots of books inside it—some 5000 titles, we were told.

The sun was hot, in a cancerous, melanoma-inducing kind of way. Summer is just right around the corner.

Took us a while to get inside the ship. I thought this view of Manila's skyline from one of the windows was amazing.

We saw what we came for: books. They were sold in "units" that had a corresponding peso conversion. The books sold cheaply, so I got David Copperfield by Charles Dickens for 150 units (Php 150). I plan to read at least one Dickens novel this year, 2012 being his 200th birthday. (I'm ashamed to admit I haven't read a single novel of his, ever).

I saw Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, classics, modern fiction, modern Christian literature, biographies, medical and nursing textbooks, and children's books.

Visit MV Logos Hope at Pier 15 in the Port Area, Manila. The ship leaves on March 13 for Subic Bay, so hurry.

    1. Hambal man nila halin lang daw sila sa Cebu, Maya! I'm pretty sure being surrounded by those books inside an actual ship and traveling around the world and sharing the gospel message to strangers must be worth it.

    1. By all means, Razeru! You can also bring your papers there; they have a cafe that serves delicious chocolate-chip cookies and ice cream.
