Behold the Filipino tricycle! Wonder at its bright colours! Rejoice in its ubiquity! Warm to its endearing tin can nature! Marvel at the fact it can hold at least 9 adults! (Although, for the record, I like the Manila tricycles, which look much more like side cars, better than this Ormoc one. Even though they only hold 6 people.)

Hi Meg- you wouldn't believe how long it took me to find an unused name- not enough imagination. Good to see the new postings.

My question is: Are sports as much an obsession in the Phillipines as in Canada? Is the World Cup a unifying obsession even when people have more pressing concerns?

Of course Canadians were still playing hockey in June- no wonder the rest of the world thinks that we live in the frozen North!
