Phew... The taxi drivers are pushing for a P45 flagdown on their taxis... While the jeepney drivers in the whole Philippines are pushing for a P1-2 fare hike... Yikes!

I was just thinking of a thread along these lines. Don't forget the Caretelas or Calesas even if these are plying only the Intramuros historic areas. I think @Dancethingy has a picture we can lift in the photo albums thread. What else? The Pasig River ferry line. There are the "skates" in Quezon. Do we still have those cows pulling caravans of native woven products?

Maiksi pa nga iyan. (the plank i mean) it's pretty standard going up the MOUNTAINTRAILs in mindanao like up to Diwalwal or other remote areas na walang road.

That doesn't look like the original skylab. It's like a chinese acrobat , with up to 8 passenger 4on each side ADULTS may bitbit pang manok. And the plank is about 8 feet wide minsan 10 pa!

That's why it's called skylab kasi mukhang old skylab that was the US space station in the 70's.

You may as well include the various ferries in this thread since you're at it.

about the taxis, vying for a flag down rate of 45 Php...Please no, don't do it. My allowance can't afford it. For a 10 minute ride, I almost pay up to 60 Php depending on the speed of the cab.

My grandma's driver told me that the faster the taxi goes, the faster the meter runs because the device is located somewhere near or on the wheels of the taxi.

the taxi driver looks like he's being carjacked in the photo the riceboy effect also hasn't escaped our taxis, maybe that's why the flagdown fare is 45 pesos, for the nitrous and the rear wings
