Im not sure if i Love or hate Manila. The city is so big , poluted , big traffic jams and so much noise. On the other side when i walked to the Chinese Cemetary yesterday i stopped and talked to this guys living nearby for over 1hour.. Even though they have so little (kaloocan is not a rich part of Manila) they where willing to offer me lunch! And if you considder that im going around with a camera with a pricetag of 58.000 Peso they still offered me lunch! (The people working at the Townhouse get P4000 every month and a electrian on a ferry has P8000 so get things into perspective).. So you just cant help to love the people here!
Today its time to see more of Makati, which is the more wealthy people in Manila is living. My impressions is that Malate (and perhaps Ermita) and Makati is the more wealthy (and safe) areas of the city , but this is only my impression.
