London bus driver in Manila

Postby Twobrains » Sat Jan 21, 2012 12:23 pm

A London bus driver goes to Manila to drive a Jeepney and is staggered by the poverty, overcrowding and crazy traffic. It's quite an eye-opener if you (like me) haven't been there.

This was a very good documentary, thank you for posting this. I will not look at jeepney drivers in the same way after this.

Pag pag is pretty shocking. I remember seeing footage of kids eating out of dumpsters in the Philippines before but I didn't know there was an entire market behind it.

Have any of you tried it before?
