Traditional Manila

Follow my journey from Hong Kong to Miami during my 70-day cruise on the Oceania Insignia.  Today’s segment takes me on a city tour of Manila, Philippines.

Here are a few pictures from my tour of Manila. Some say it has changed little in the past decades.  Life goes on in the heart of Manila… locals go about their everyday routine.  The La Loma area is a marketplace known for its displays of roasted suckling pigs on skewers. This day I visited Mila’s, famous for it’s Lechon.  I traveled by “Jeepney”,  a unique form of transportation…a bus-like vehicle made from U. S. Military Jeeps left after World War II.  Today’s Jeepney’s are air-conditioned and typically painted in flamboyant colors and designs.
