Manila, Philippines, August 2012
Flooding in Manila
I stayed for a month in Sampaloc district, a poor and student district. I was in a small apartment with seven room-mates. To fit all these people, there were tiny bunk beds and mattress on the floor, divided with cheap wooden partitions. Flooding is common during the wet season, I was stuck inside for three days. I had to wait for the water level to drop before going outside. People in this area are not really affected by the flooding as can be seen with these two amused children.
