Corregidor Island is where the Filipino and American forces made a last stand against the invading Japanese forces in World War II, our school textbooks would tell us. The books bear photos of the guns and the ruins. Seeing the real thing, however, must be a totally experience, I thought when I was younger. So, today, after more than 30 years of delay, I finally crossed Manila Bay to invade what the forces during WW2 fondly call “The Rock”.
