I saw this in Hypermart once. After having that picture in mind I bought much less than planned. I don't think I bought anything at the meat counter that day.

Was taking a trike, with just my wife and I, from the remote and isolated beachfront property of my good Canadian friend one very wet day, when the trike got stuck in the mud.  Just by chance there was a group of about 8 boys..  age about 10 to 14, walking by in the other direction at exactly the right moment.  Without a word of encouragement or request all of the boys gathered quickly at the back of the trike..  and "presto" we were on our way with a few "Bye Joe" calls and lots of laughing.  The whole experience was less than 30 seconds.  But the laughing faces of the boys made it memorable.  The image remains in my head some years later.  One of the joys of the Philippines I know.

Oops, I meant to put this in the meaningless pictures. Can someone move it ? Or maybe it works in either place ????

It‘s still on topic, that chook is doing the "tinikling" dance.

My photo is of the family jeepney trying to get it started. Dead battery, as usual.

Reminds me of the time I was driving my car in Cebu about 10 years ago.

There was a pothole in the street that was so deep that it swallowed the left front tire, and I couldn't go forward or reverse.  The frame of the car near the tire was actually sitting on the road.

I was standing by my car trying to decide what to do when a group of 6 young Filipinos walked by and offered their help.    They picked up the front of my car and pulled my car forward out of the pothole.

That is one of many of my good memories of the Philippines.

That's a herbal soap made from the placenta of plants. That one got me when I first visited the Philippines and I had to ask the saleslady when I came across it. I felt a lot better after I found out the ingredients.

So they do actually have safety equipment here but just use it for dancing.  Ok.
