Mick was just reading some trivia on Google News about abandoned buildings of interest
around the world and there was Subic Bay the place we visited about fifty years ago.
Its been closed now for over twenty years but its still there.
Olongapo next door was a good run for anything you wanted.
:roll: :roll:

always reminded me of a cowboy town, with them swing doors as you entered the bars.

and the cowboys you met there! Mind you it was a high risk place to be! You were warned NOT to wander off the main street or else . . . . . . yeah I did of course! Remember the gate guard checking the numbers out and back in at the end of the night - seems they rarely tallied - lost a fair few out of the base - throats slit and other nice things, seems that whilst the locals lived off the base they did not like the Yanks one little bit - how unusual!!! :o :o :o :o :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :mrgreen:
