My World#53 Peace Archway, Chinatown

For the past two or three years, three archways were constructed as landmarks for the established Chinatown in Davao City. I have already featured here the first constructed archway. The next two were constructed and were finished almost at the same time just last 2009.

The Peace Archway is one of the two newly constructed archways in the Chinatown area. It is located along Sta. Ana Ave.,just beside the Davao City Chinese School.

Arches adds more color and interest on this big city of the south. Indeed, peace is more welcome in the regions nearby so people can move on and prosper.
