    Never criticize a dumb question because you've probably asked your fair share. But more important to remember, it's much easier to correct a dumb question than it is to correct a dumb mistake.


    Other people’s opinions are not a substitute for thought.

    People won't remember what you say and people won't remember what you do. What people will remember is how you made them feel.

    Worked and lived in Baguio City (northern Luzon) while working at gold/copper mines in the area for 3.5 years way back in the 70's. Spent a lot of time riding
    the Rabbit Bus between Baguio and Manila. I preferred taxi's over jeepneys unless I'd been on Tanduay, Lambanog, Tapuy or Ginebra San Miguel. The RP was one of the best assignments ever!!

    Will note I never saw a jeepney in as pristine condition as shown in OP's post.

    Rode in jeepneys a lot when I was there in the early 1970's as a young Marine. It was fun and I found my fellow passengers to be warm, friendly people. Eventually married a Filipina after two failed attempts with American women. Been married 11 yrs and still going strong.

    I love the Philippines! Friendly, welcoming people, most of whom speak English almost better than many Americans do! Great food! Beautiful scenery. My only problem is that it is too far away and, at 67 yrs old, that airplane trip from South Carolina to General Santos City is just too much of an ordeal. Haven't been there in about 7 yrs and I really miss visiting family and friends I have made there. Luckily, some have been able to come to the U.S. to visit us, though.

    Photo of us just a few days ago on an Alaskan cruise as part of our anniversary.

    When I was in the Navy in the early 80's, I made many port calls to Subic Bay.
    Rode Jeepneys all around Olongapo.
    Loved San Miguel beer!

    Brings back memories of San Miguel Beer, and Veijo Rum. Feeding the alligator ducklings at Paulines. Rolling down the stairs at the Old East End. And a few other memories.

    I spent a lot of time {mid sixities} in Subic Bay and then later in the hospital on top of the Mountain. I rode a lot of Jeepneys and made a lot of friends there. I would love to go back but at my age and health I don't see it happening.

    I remember stopping off there while on my way to a minor skirmish in south-east Asia. Seemed like a fun place to hang out.
