What a Day 7 September 2002 was. The People From Jolo started their tour of New York and New Jersey at 08:00 AM. Our group hosted by Mr. Errol Navata Mercerville, New Jersey started us off with a tour to Ellis Island and then Liberty Island. The boat tour provided a great view of both New York City and the Islands.
Our Jolo Tausug picnic was at Liberty State Park, Jersey
City, New Jersey. Wow!!! What a day wonderful day and picnic.
Your would not believe the food. It was all the traditional food
from Home. Yes, food from Jolo. We all felt like we were at
our beloved home town. Liberty park is also the home of the historic
Central Railroad of New Jersey Terminal (CRRNJ) which sits
prominently at the north end of the park. A two-mile promenade, Liberty
Walk links the picnic area, Interpretive Center and the CRRNJ Terminal
while presenting visitors with a sweeping view of the Hudson River.
We were in a grove of beautiful trees right on the river bank. The
park, the view, and the friendship are just more than can be described
with words. You will see for yourself in the picture section.
