-As they traveled along the famous river, Rizal observed keenly the river sights- the barges loaded with products, the flowers and plants growing along the river banks, the boats with families living on them, and the quaint villages on the riversides . We particularly noticed that the passengers on the river boat were using paper napkins during the meals, which was a novelty to him.
His fellow passenger, Viola, commented that the paper napkins were “more hygienic and economical than cloth napkins”. From Lintz to Rheinfall. -The river voyage ended in Lintz. They traveled overland to Salzburg, and from there to Munich where they sojourned for a short time to savor the famous Munich beer, reputed to be the best in Germany.
-From Munich, they went to Nuremberg, One of the oldest cities of Germany. Among the sights which they saw in this city were the horrible torture machines used by the Inquisition. Rizal examined carefully these torture machines. He and Viola were impressed by the manufacture of dolls which was the biggest industry of the city. After Munich, they visited Ulm.
The cathedral of this city was “the largest and tallest in all Germany”.
Viola related that he and Rizal climbed its many hundred steps.
He rested twice on the way to the tower and felt dizzy from the
strain upon reaching the top.
Rizal, on the other hand,
ascended without resting and was not tired when he reached the top. From Ulm, they went to Stuttgart, Baden, and then
Rheinfall (Cascade of the Rhine).
At Rheinfall, they saw the waterfall,
“the most beautiful waterfall of Europe”. Crossing the Frontier to Switzerland - From Rheinfall, they went to Schaffhausen, Switzerland From Lausanne to Geneva - Rizal and Viola left on a little boat, crossing the foggy leman lake.
- Geneva is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe On June 19,1887 Rizal treated Viola to aa blow out for his 26th birthday. According to a Filipino custom, he celebrated his birthday with a sumptous meal. Rizal and Viola spent 15 delightful days in Geneva on June 23 they parted ways Viola returned to Barcelona while Rizal continued the tour to Italy Rizal in Italy . From Geneva, Rizal went to Italy. Rizal visited Turin, Milan, Venice, and Florence. On June 27, 1887, he reached Rome, the “Eternal City” and also called the “City of the Caesars”. He was thrilled by the sights and memories of the Eternal City. Describing to Blumentritt, the “grandeur that was Rome”, he wrote on June 27, 1887.On June 29th, the Feast Day of St. Peter and St. Paul, Rizal visited for the first time the Vatican, the “City of the Popes” and the capital of Christendom He was deeply impressed by the magnificent edifices,
particularly of St. Peter’s Church.
Every night, after sightseeing the whole day,
Rizal returned to his hotel, very tired. “I am tired as a dog
,” he wrote to Blumentritt,
“but I will sleep as a god.” After a week,
he prepared to return to the Philippines. Farewell to Calamba Rizal’s exposure of the deplorableconditions of tenancy in Calamba
infuriated further his enemies.
The friars exerted pressure on Malacanan Palace to eliminate him.
They asked Governor General Terrero to deport him,
but the latter refused because there
was no valid charge against Rizal in court.
One day Governor General Terrero summoned Rizal and
“advised” him to leave the Philippines for his own good This time Rizal had to go.
He could not very well disobey the governor general’s
But he was not running like a coward from a fight.
He was courageous,
a fact which his worst enemies could not deny.
He was compelled to leave Calamba for two reasons: A Poem for Lipa Shortly before Rizal left Calamba in 1888 his friend from Lipa requested him
to write a poem in commemoration of the town’s
elevation to a villa (city) by virtue of the Becerra Law of 1888.
Gladly, he wrote a poem dedicated to the industrious folks of Lipa.
This was the “Himno Al Trabajo” (Hymn to Labor).
He finished it and sent it to Lipa before his departure to Calamba. 1) His presence in Calamba was jeopardizing the safety and happiness of his family and friends and (2) he could fight better his enemies and serve his country’s cause with greater efficacy by writing in foreign countries.
