My Tartanilla Ride At Manila
My mama and I went to Manila last January. I only have my Kodak camera then. Maybe it was a good thing because I might've dislocated my trigger finger if I had a faster camera--- with flash.
I busted the flash last December taking a lot of photos nonstop. I've mellowed down some. Anyway, I have taken a lot of photos while we were playing the tourist at the Philippine's capital--- as we should. We were tourist! hehe I am almost always mistaken for a tourist here in my hometown how much more when I'm really one!
I don't have much to say about where we went because I'm really terrible with names, directions and places. All I can say is it was an experience to remember.
Lots of traffic, dust, funny sights...
...smoke, and of course the flamboyant horse. I forgot what his name was. Henry-- I think?
We caught the ride after our excursion at the Manila zoo.
Mama and I were really determined to get the most of our vacation (haha) there.
I think this was at Roxas Boulevard.
And... I forgot where this is.
If you haven't ever ridden a caratela, or tartanilla or horse carriage before-- You have (almost) now. Without the heat and smoke that went with it. hehe
