The Daily Word Press challenge for the week is Culture. More here.
This time I would like to share our rich Spanish heritage. Many countries have colonized the country, after the Spaniards, there were the Americans and then the Japanese came. Like many other countries, the Chinese have maintained a strong presence too as merchants.
But the Philippines has been a Spanish colony for four centuries so it is not surprising that our culture is very much influenced by them. From religion to our language, architecture, food, customs and traditions. Even though we can be considered an English-speaking country, imbedded in our dialects are many Spanish words.
