from across the pacific
10 days without a post can only mean one thing - TRAVEL! I have been in Manila, the capital city of the Philippines, for about a week now working on a slum upgrading research project for my masters degree program. Although we are (very kindly) being put up in a luxury ex-pat bubble, we have gotten the chance to explore the city a little bit. Some of my favorite things so far:
The jeepney, an amazing form of public transit...
& Spanish influence in the Old Town of Intramuros
