"Ghostly" Tour Hopes to Revive Philately

Jeannette Andrade  of the Philippine Daily Inquirer reports a "unique walking tour of historic places and buildings in Manila not only lets people get in touch with the past, but also with the ghosts of the past" - some of which are found in the Philippine Postal Corp.

According to Jeannette, the postal office’s “spirit-workers” are on its third and fourth floors and are frequently seen by Philpost employees."

"But the ghostly apparitions are just a part of the total experience of the tour, which hopes to resurrect the dying art of philately in the e-mail age through leisurely strolls around historic sites around the country’s capital often depicted in stamps," pens Jeannette.

The tours sometimes coincide with the The Filipinas Stamp Collectors’ Club (FSCC) meetings on Sundays at the Postal Museum and Philatelic Library.
