congratulations Mr Swift

This is a first for me, 2 posts in one day, but today sees an event of such momentous proportions that it cannot go past un-noticed. Perhaps it may also have something to do with the restrictions imposed by the weather...... whatever.

The second best blog on the net is celebrating 7 months of posts and 100,000 visitors, both on the same day.

A very big congratulation goes out to Jon Swift. Your number of visitors is very well earned and also very well deserved. Following in the tradition of your name sake you have made the world and for sure the internet a much better place, perhaps even a better place than it deserves to be.

If you dear reader havent read Jon Swift do yourself a favour and do so, the link is on the right.

Chicken Seller

A slow day at the market, his face says it all. This shot was taken at the Poblacion market when Typhoon Florita was dumping rain by the bucket fulls as it headed out to sea.

Kalentong St II

Midday traffic in Kalentong St in Mandaluyong. Now that I have started teaching English I must make my way through this throng each working day. Riding a jeep to and from I get to watch the Fascinating kaleidoscope that is the streets of Manila.

A large number of the marching bands here feature a xylophone section along with drummers, marching girls. This band is playing in the town square as part of the celebrations for the St Peter & Paul fiesta held last week.

Marching Band

End of last week was the Fiesta for St Peter & Paul here in beautiful down town Poblacion. The marching bands were out in force parading through the streets, this is one of several that dragged the residents out of their houses to party.

Tricycle with Passenger

Got this shot at the end of the street a few days ago and after a play in photoshop this is what I came up with.
