One thing I will miss about Ukraine in Manila is the architecture.
In the meantime, slum areas in the Phils are less depressing than slums in UA.
Slums in UA look like this:
Filipino slums are happy places, where people party and enjoy every day.
In UA, in those slums, you will see well dressed white people with cellphones. But they are still not as happy as Filipinos.
The most depressing are US slums populated by very angry people.
A brain is a terrible thing to wash!
Depending on how you read this sentence, it sounds like the two countries have been gettin' it on.
I haven't been to Ukraine, but I do remember (not really too fondly though) the slums in Philippines. The people are definitely happy. It's impossible to avoid togetherness. But I hated it. Given all the scamming and some perceived danger when alone, I stayed in a lot. Even just walking around the place (which was basically a garbage dump town) was difficult. Better be wearing decent sneakers.
