Manila Highlights

Since we've spent the last (almost) 2 months living here in Manila, I've decided to show pictures of some of the things we've done since being here. Some of the things not pictured are the things we did the most of: mall trips, fun times in the guest house and shopping.

Every day we would do school, switching things around doing school in different places because it started to become very monotonous in such a small room.

Every afternoon we would do a study on something about Manila. We learned about the Quiapo church, the "Smoky Mountain", the American cemetery, Intramuros etc...

Playing cards after school

Escaping the Manila heat by going swimming!! (Aren't they adorable!?!?)

Moffits and the Merritts

Waiting for taxis - Trying to look like they are enjoying it? Or just squinting because of the sun?

... Neo too

The girls at the Quiapo church (This picture is technically illegal, I should sell it and make some serious $$)


Waiting for a taxi outside Quiapo.

Manila traffic. Insanity

After almost 2 months of Manila we realized we still haven't ridden the train!! So we decided one day to ride it to the mall instead of taxiing. (Funny story behind this picture)

Shortly after taking this picture I lost my balance (you need both hands to take a picture with my camera) and fell into a pole with my head. But I would say it was definitely worth it =)

Neo, Josh and Matt Damon ;)

Belinda and Matt Damon's wife!!

The girlies finally got a seat near towards the end of our ride.

Chilling at starbucks in the mall where Neo would run from person to person begging for their coffees.

Those west-coast boys...

How can you resist sharing your coffee with a boy who makes this face at you? (.....You can't!)

This makes me laugh every time!!

The ghetto carousel in Trinoma

Even Neo was bored!

High-school Musical Bowling - birthday party at Megamall

Notice the bowling alley's smallest shoe size?
