Majayjay: Just Passing Through

The Shoestring Diaries

Metro Manila’s horrendous traffic and vehicle number coding schemes would sometimes force us to leave early for a trip outside the metropolis. And so last Tuesday, on the way to the wake of a friend’s sister in Lucena City inQuezon province we had to leave at 5:30AM since our car was off-limits on Metro Manila’s streets that day from 7AM to 8PM. That meant arriving in Lucena by 8:45 AM which is way too early for a funeral wake in the Philippines.
