Termites in Manila:

Imelda Marcos Famous Shoes Infested

For the past week Imelda Marcos shoe collection has been in the news. Apparently the well-heeled First Lady’s prized possessions have become infested with termites. During the past 24 years while awaiting a decision on what to do with the former First Lady’s collections, all of the items have been in storage. According to the press reports, every precaution was taken to protect the items in case they proved to be of some historical significance. Unfortunately the monsoon that hit the Philippines in August proved too much for the room housing the vast collections. Leaks went undetected and by the time the items were removed on August 9th the damage was done. Now the Old Legislative Building is in need of structural repairs but the National Museum is confident in their ability to protect what is left of the Imelda Marcos collections.
