There are many news floating around that the situation of Manila and some regions in the Philipines now is messy. So decided to stay right in the middle of Malate and Ermita – the truely old Manila city. Those are regions of workers, outcasts, gangs, prostitution…
But finally I founded out that they are very interesting places to discover, and quite safe honestly (if you know how to be safe as a stranger). I could walk around and took living photos with my Leica or phone normally. In the morning you can walk through Manila bay. Sometimes you can see the polices are trying to catch thieves or smt like that, even a hear-alike gun sound ( or sounds from the construction site near that as the reception told me).

A colourful wall inside City in the walls – Intramuros, Manila. The place has many vibrant corners, old walls and lot of things to see about the city in the wall.

I used to use Lastfm in the past. It is such a great place for music lover whom always want to discover the so wide music world. Just suddenly see an e-mail, login back to my old profile (the 2nd or 3rd, maybe). So great to see my old journal of music, a lot to tell. And some friends on that special place.
In the old yahoo mail, found some e-mails for Italian books, the very first, time flies.
Ich mag diese Filme. Ein Blick über die alte Bundesrepublik Deutschland. Die Zeit reflektiert unser Land jetzt.

I do often use public transportation when arriving to a different city (if they have of course). Cause that is the best way to know the real local life and people.
Jakarta is a very big city, most populated one in South East Asia. They have commuters and Bus Rapid Trans or so-called BRT. Beside extremely good coffee, transportation is another thing that you should experience yourself here, notably in the real rush hours

There are still some very old building that hold images of Saigon in my memories

Ordinary Jakarta in my eyes – girls in hijab, blue tuk tuk with other flamboyant decoration colors, and green of Grab bikers…
