Taxi is a great way of geting around - both in Manila and outside. Especially if you like me finds it diffricult to get a grib of which jeepney goes where. But remember ALLWAYS to drive on the meter. I fell for the fixed price once and it cost me 1250 Php from UN to Makati - and there were even a dispute of he said 1250 or 250.....on my way back I demanded meter and I got back for 92 allways no matter what they say about trafic go for meter!

These stories are from Filipino friends! How is your partner getting used to Malmo? There was a show on TV here which talks about people overseas and their experiences buying homes. They had a lesbian couple from Malmo looking for a place to buy. Malmo looked quite interesting!

minibrings: Ohhh I wouldnt worry about that. Useually you can feel relatively safe from kidnappings unless you are in the southern Mindanao or the Sulu Sea. In the Catholic part of Philippines be more aware of overchargeing and pick pockets.
