Manila Bay Boulevard by night

I just walked along Manila Boulevard, and ‘just’ is Tuesday November 29, 2016 around 11 pm. And where I was just looking for a spot to eat and drink the snack I had bought, I found the area occupied with homeless people, people apparently living on the street.

And there are many poor people, people living on the street in Manila, in The Philippines, and as The Philippines is a warm, tropical country living on the street is not as bad as living in many Western countries, like The Netherlands, where I come from originally, as you won’t freeze to death in winter or get sick when it is cold and wet.

So it was not the place I remembered from seven years ago when I was in Manila in this area for about a month for a medical procedure, it was not a place to enjoy the bay and have a snack.
