we had to go through manila inorder to get to taiwan... there was no choice.. he arrive around 4 in the morning and we had breakfast at the airport.. grzechu really wanted to go outside of the airport and see manila but said id rather stay in the airport.. so we checked in our bags really early and i used my tagalog to ask questions. hahah then we ate breakfast at the airport and waited for the sun to come up... i tried to convice grzechu not to go outside but he was really adamant about seing the metro.. so we got outside and took a voucher taxi which was a mistake cause it was way to high of a price and headed towards baclaran? (apparently worst place in manila) i wasnt surprised with what i saw with all the poverty and pollution and all but i guess it was a shock to grzechu.. the taxi dropped us off and we walked towards the church and through a market which was flooded.. then we rode the metro back and forth.. we decided to take a jeep back to the airport and it was going fine at first untill we passed the airport and ofcourse the driver didnt tell us... we had to get out of the first jeep and catch another jeep back.. i told the driver to please tell us when our stop is since we are not familar with the place (in tagalog)hahah .. turns out we were droped off at the wrong airport and we had to take a taxi anyway. hahah so we got back to the airport and i wanted to take a shower bad. i was glad our flight was not so far away... im done with manila.. onward to taipei!
