A different world

Burgos Circle in Bonifacio Global City "That's universal—we all want to bring every good thing to our children. But what's not universal is our ability to provide every good thing."
~Melinda Gates, American businesswoman and philanthropist

These are just a few of the high-rise residential condominium towers in Bonifacio Global City. The shorter buildings are restaurants and shops around Burgos Circle, a roundabout with a park in the middle, from where I took this photo. Standing there, it was almost easy to forget that the Philippines is a third world country (or, to be politically correct, a developing country).

Those are such huge buildings - I've never lived in such close proximity to so many people. I like the photo also capturing the shops.

Aside from the vegetation, it could easily be a scene from here. The towers have an imposing look.

Do these buildings have a nice view? THey look nice!

They are "pretenders," right? They don't exemplify the reality that is the Philippines? I would guess that it would cost a pretty penny to buy a condo in such majestic buildings!
