Dear everyone,

We need to compile a list of important landmarks in Intramuros and
surrounding areas (historical areas/landmarks, POIs, etc.).  We want
to compile a comprehensive hunting list for each cake slice.  Just
reply to this message for the landmarks you think we should map or
update the wiki planning page:
