Marcelo Fernan Bridge

I arrived in Cebu last September 7 (it was a holiday) around 10 in the morning. Unlike in Metro Manila, the sun is up and shining there. After getting our baggage, we set on our vehicle and travel from Mactan Island (where the aiport is situated) to Cebu Island.

We pass by a bridge that connects the two islands, the Mactan-Mandaue Bridge. I had seen a few Cebuanos enjoying and swimming in the body of water. Wish the river back in my hometown is clean enough to have that kind of enjoyment.

I felt like a child wanting to plunge into the water with that kind of scene.

As we go on, I had an opportunity to take a shot of the Marcelo Fernan Bridge. It is the bridge that connects the two islands and is newer as compared to the bridge that we were passing by. It was named after the former Supreme Court Justice of the Philippines.

The bridge was opened August of 1999 with the length of 1,237 meters and center span of 185 meters and had known to be one of the longest and widest bridges in the Philippines.

I also got the chance to have a photo of it in a much nicer angle at one of our pitstops.
