Weekend Activities for August 16 - 17, 2013

I have no activities to advice for Saturday. But I suggest you try something you have never done, nothing crazy like extreme sports. I say simple things like walking around the city, exercising in the park (especially in the morning), learn to knit or maybe write a postcard to congratulate yourself and then send it at the post office.

You can also drop by this Saturday Market at Escolta.
