|The Paco fire station today|
The station has not changed much, except the widening of the left and right entrances for the fire trucks - they have gotten bigger after decades. The fake brick texturing have been placed in the decade I have last visited the inside of this station.
While we can see the service personnel of the station are busy with their daily duties, we were observing the surroundings via sketching. There were 18 of us for this session, 5 of which were first time sketchers with us namely, Cheenee Buenaventura, Jose, Ruben, Mikaela and Romina.

We then had a lunch break after ending the morning session with pictures of our works and our usual group shot. The afternoon session was then focused on the Paco Park, which is opposite of the fire station across the street.
