Playing Footsie with Quiapo


Many years ago, Quiapo was downright dirty — covered in filth, and wet everywhere even if it was high noon. Today, that has changed a bit \O/

Last April, there was no reason for me not to enjoy the photo walk with my friends. I wasn’t even scared of pickpocketers, or brawlers, or those who’d grab you by the arm to force you to buy something from them. Or kids begging for coins with their grubby palms.

This is not to badmouth the place, this is merely telling the truth about what it was  years ago. Right now, anyone going there can be happy to some extent that it has changed.

And with none of those… I thought I’d play FOOTSIE (hahaha!) with Quiapo.
