This was during the day my friend Aidx and I went on a Manila adventure.
We both dint know much about public transpo in the city but we took the courage to explore it ourselves without a Manilenyo to come with us. Try to envision two Davaoneos getting lost in the streets of Manila. Yes we got lost.
I havent been in the MRT/LRT station much and in fact this was the first time I rode the train without an expert to accompany me. I won't lie and fool you by saying I enjoyed every minute of it, but it was quite a trip. An eye-opening one, to be honest. Seeing people jostling one another just to get in isn't a pleasant view--I always get intimidated by it--but I admire their courage cause it damn takes a serious amount of strength just to get pass the commotion in the entryway!
I observed each of their faces and no words needed to explain how long and taxing their day must have been. I praise these commuters. They should be called soldiers of the real world.
Brave, determined and patient.
