Colorful Philippines

The Masskara Festival is a festival held each year in October  in Bacolod, Philippines. The Masskara (a combination of the English word “mass” and the Spanish “kara,” meaning “face”) is a Festival that started in the early 1980s, when world prices for sugar plummeted; and Bacolod City, the country’s sugar capital, was hit by a major crisis. The city government and artists banded together to find ways to lift the people’s spirits (not to mention their deteriorating economy), so they decided to throw a party!

My friend Mikko lives part of the year in Bacolod  and this card is from him.
