Undas

I often wonder what "Undas" means. A web page I found said that Undas or Undras (All Saints' day in the Philippines) comes from Spanish "honras" which means "honors." It's the time when Filipinos goes to various cemeteries to pay homage to their departed loved ones.

I visited Metro Manila's largest burial ground- The Manila North Cemetery. This burial ground reflects its congested urban surroundings and just like in the world of the living, difference between the rich and the poor still exists here.
