It seems to me, the rich have put up their gates everywhere to keep out the poor, or anyone who might want their wealth. It’s also a safety measure, intended to protect against Manila’s notorious crime.
It’s also a bit weird. When you walk around my neighborhood it seems like almost everything is behind a gate. I’m usually curious and like to look at people’s houses and into buildings, but it’s not really possible here.
Although it’s unrecognizable, that’s an ABS-CBN car on its way back to the mothership.
It honked at me while I was standing there gawking with my camera. I wonder if it was someone I know.
More photos of Manila are on their way, as soon as I have time to explore more (and my friends stop taking me to malls!!)
