My sister and I both traveled to Manila (she left from Memphis and I left from Tampa to meet up in Japan for the last flight) and arrived on a hot and humid August night. With no real plans we just decided what we wanted to do each day and went.
One day was simply walking down Roxas Blvd to eat breakfast since we both had jet lag and my father now wakes the roosters up to tell them its time to crow.
Another day we drove to Tagatay enjoying the cooler weather, some lunch, and finding out about dragon fruit. I don't think the one we bought was ripe because it didn't really taste like anything and was gritty.
