I want to thank my landlords Rose and Sonny for letting me stay at their boarding house on Natividad Ave in Santa Cruz, Manila. I learned a lot about Manila during my stay there and I learned how to take MASS TRANSIT. I took Jeepneys (Jeeps built into a small bus), Tricycles (motorcycles with side car), elevated trains (MRT/LRT) as well as the occasional Calesa in Intramuros! I got to see first hand the markets in Santa Cruz and the vendors selling all types of electronics! I wish I would have had more time to stay and perhaps, mor importantly, more money!
There are several ways to get around Metro manila. Taxis can be very expensive, while MASS TRANSPORTATION is relatively cheap. The elevated trains LRT & MRT are usually 10p to 15p depending on how far you are going.
I really miss taking the LRT, MRT and PNR all over Manila…I do hope to return next year!
