Saying hello from Metro Manila!
I'm in Manila for a day and am so thankful that it did not rain and flood as it did earlier this week because of another typhoon named Helen.
One particularly horrible memory of a Manila flood comes to mind. Many, many years back, I was walking somewhere along Espana, right across UST, and the water was knee deep and there were rats, dead and alive, floating/swimming around and I could not do anything about it. Just had to continue wading through the rodent infested murky, yukky water.
