Only in the Philippines Experiences: MRT, LRT, Bus, Footbridge, Jeepney

I stayed in Manila for 7 days. I tried all means of public transportation to also experience what the mass have all experienced. I was so dizzy to look at so many people in the train station. They have two train transportation called MRT( Mass Railroad Transit) and LRT (Light Railroad Transit). I did try it for the sake of experience. I wondered why all people were so eager to jump out from the train. It was in the second to the last station that I noticed people were already at the door, the time it halted to the last stop. It was me and my friend Jean who were left there. I have to do it, because the last time I tried their pace when I put my card for the first time it went out again and the person who was standing at my back got mad because I was very slow.

I tried the Bus ride from Trinoma to Ortigas because I would be attending church at VCF Robinsons Galleria. I love the Bus ride, I could not complain. But what I did not like about riding the bus is the tormenting footbridge walk. You have to climb a footbridge to be able to cross to the other street. I forgot to take pictures though, I was bringing my bags, my hands were full, the scorching heat of the sun made me want to run and get it over with.

I was so lucky for this trip because I did not have to ride a jeepney. I have a friend who has a driver who always picked me up to be able to get to the location I needed to go, I even boarded her Porsche Cayenne (said with the hint of pride, because I don’t know if I could buy or even rode it again.) While I was inside the car I saw the jeepney. I was surprised to see that their Jeepneys have bars like that in the picture.Image

 

I asked my friend’s driver and he said it was use for protecting themselves from thieves
during the night.I was just surprised. That’s all.

 

I gotta say ONLY IN THE PHILIPPINES.
