The Jeepney

what I love the most in the Philippines is the hospitality of the people. They are very friendly and helpful to foreigners. I love the mode of transportation there too. No matter where you want to go, there is always a transportation available. Our children love to ride in jeepney. They find it entertaining riding with many people especially if they are talking to them. As a remembrance we bought our son this keepsake... A Jeepney!
Have a nice day everyone!

Yes, the jeepney is so unique, it can only be found in the Philippines. Just shows how enterprising Filipinos really are. EJ must have been so fond of its replica. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.
