Getting to Work

Fortunately, SPi provided a driver to get us to and from the office. To me, the issue with driving in Manila is not the amount of traffic and its not the fact that no one seems to drive in a specific lane. It is that people walk in the middle of traffic. It is that jitney's stop in the middle of traffic and people get off and cross traffic.

Here is the SPi billboard!!

Here are some photos from the drive to and from the office.

There are many of these little shops along the streets leading to the office.

Jitney's Own the Road

Jitney's are the main transportation for most of the working population in Manila. Most do not have air conditioning so they are open with no windows. You frequently see people hanging off the back of them. Air pollution is so bad...people frequently cover their mouths, noses, and faces as they travel.

This Jitney driver wanted his picture taken!
