Our visit to Parks & Wildlife

We paid admission, walked through the gate, and a giant clap of thunder started the hardest rain I’ve seen since arriving in Quezon City, Philippines. We stood under a tarp and ate hamburgers and went home wet.

Walk through of Batasan

We went out into our neighborhood in Batasan to buy some roasted chicken for lunch. This is our walk home. I love all the interesting stuff in the neighborhoods here. I like to see the people, how they live and work, as well as the animals, like chickens, dogs, cats. So much texture, mixes of old and new, and amazing fruit colors.

Bayview Park Hotel Manila

Here at the Bayview Park Hotel in Manila Philippines their website advertises free WiFi and free breakfast for all rooms, but they charged us for both, AND the room leaked from the A/C until the tile floor was a giant puddle. We had to argue with the manager and show her the hotel website before she would refund us for the surprise charges at the end of our stay. She told us the WiFi and breakfast was not free because we booked online from their website… which states both are FREE… Once we showed her the website she had to make a bunch of phone calls to refund us our money and it took about an hour to fix while my daughter had to wait. If you need to visit the US Embassy in Manila I would advise you to stay anywhere else but this scam hotel.
