MV Doulos (Bacolod)

6

MV Doulos is a big ship. A two years younger than the Titanic, this is the oldest ship that still crosses and navigates the ocean all around the world.

MV Doulos is a big ship that circumnavigates the world with its books, bringing knowledge, help and hope. I was surprised two days ago when a friend asked me to go over Doulos. I asked where the hell is that, and she brought me into this place. It was docked in Bredco Port. It’s a big white ship which has an entrance fee of 10 Pesos. Upon entrance, there are books sold in varying costs from a dollar to five a-piece. You can locate yourself though, from drama to inspirational to children, you name a genre they got it. It’s a big bookstore - in a big ship!

Since most are bargain books, I found myself buying a book for five years old. I am going to give them to my nephews, actually. Well, MV Doulos also has a cafe. For refreshment purposes, you can visit this place after you’re done shopping within the book shop area.

Well, it’s quite a nice experience with this one. Shopping books over a big ship overlooking the sea.

    Solo Biking Routes: Ubud in Bali, Indonesia

    Have you all watched "Eat, Pray, Love"? I was inspired by Julia Roberts, who rode a bicycle in that movie, so I decided to rent one and try it myself! This happened two years ago but I still remember my biking route. To all of you who haven't been to Ubud, I think you should visit the place and try to go around in a bicycle!

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
