Isabela City’s commercial center is basically comprised of small businesses. There are no big malls or department stores. Hotels are inexistent. Other business have closed shop, its owners opting to do business elsewhere.
At the center is the provincial hall, a small park with free wifi connection, and the lone Catholic church.
Here are a few photos I took.
Basilan Provincial Capitol, an imposing structure located in the heart of Isabela City.
A small park located a few meters from the provincial capitol. It is not surprising to see locals with their laptops taking advantage of free-wifi.
A church located across the park. Security is tight around the area. Armed soldiers are always visible.
A shot I took inside the church, a lone soldier probably waiting to be sent somewhere in the province.
These kids wanted their pics taken but asked first if they had to pay for the photo. I laughed. I said I would happily oblige to their request, free-of-charge.
