Old Manila

Pacific Lobster

Pacific Lobster

These photos were taken in Old Manila, the Capital of the Philippine Islands.  I was told this area was not safe, especially at night.  Ordinary folk here buy their food at outdoor stands; the indoor supermarkets are too expensive.

  3. These photos are gorgeous. Sometimes the unsafe is where you find the most character.

    • Absolutely. The best photos I get in Houston are not in the upscale neighborhoods.

  5. Hi Ron,
    Glad to know that you visited Philippines. Love the lobster… 🙂
    A more peaceful place and lots of sites to see is south of Manila (Batangas, Bacolod, Cebu, Dumaguete, etc.)
    Hope you could return one day, and see lots of beautiful places here in the Philippines.

    regards,
    Mel

    • It slowed down in mid December for some reason and has not really picked up since then.

      • A lot of people seem to go on vacation around this time and are unable to access their usual internet reading.
