a picture's worth a thousand pesos



So here is one of the famous trike/petty cabs. 1 kilometer is 8 pesos, so a ride into the city for me is about 9 pesos. ($1 is about 40 pesos).

Looks like fun! I can only imagine what that would be like with 7 people in one petty cab. By the way I gave you the wrong website.... it is lifechurch.tv! Check it out it looks really good and I really liked the pastor as a speaker. Talk to you soon.

Seeing this picture made me wish I was in my hometown. It looks a lot like the one in the picture.

In other parts of the Philippines, trikes have different designs. I take pictures of different trikes whenever I travel out of Manila.

umm...AMAZING!! Are the carts detachable like those add on bicycle seats for little kits?

I guess you could unbolt them and then just use the bikes, but I think they pretty much keep them attached. It's always kind of fun to ride them though! Especially on the back little seat; you just have to watch out for oncoming traffic
