Nothing wasted

In contrast to yesterday's post, most of the areas underneath Manila's flyovers are not landscaped. That doesn't mean that the space is wasted though. For example, the space under the Katipunan Avenue flyover is used as a station by jeepneys plying the Katipunan and University of the Philippines campus route.

How impressive vehicles indeed. And thank you as well, for leading the view towards places, rarely seen.

Please have a good weekend you all.

You caught a look for us of those unique buses! Are they older models, non?

Frank said...

Great looking buses. Very interesting and different from anything in the US. You'd find our buses rather dull.

Jeepneys look so cool!

I guess it's good that no space is wasted by being unused. The jeepneys certainly have an interesting look.
