Fence around the former Subic Bay International Airport

Fence around the former Subic Bay International Airport

Over the weekend, I was in Subic Bay, about 3-4 hours drive out of Manila, to watch the K-Swiss ASTC Asian Triathlon Championship. It was my first time to visit this town, which was the location of a major US Navy facilities, also known as US Naval Base Subic Bay.

As you enter the town, you can feel that the Americans were there. Not that I am an expert in anything Americans, nor anything Philippines, but, it’s so obvious. The roads are wide, electrical poles and cables are orderly, the STOP regulations for all vehicles at intersections are obeyed, and the pedestrian walkways do exist!

I captured the picture above as we were walking to the venue of swimming leg and T1, at Dungaree Beach. In the picture, you can see the fence which surrounds Subic Bay International Airport, which used to be the US Naval Air Station.
