Trust me, it's very wet inside these days in the slums of Manila

I think their days are counted. They will have to relocate soon. I don't know if it is everywhere but for sure on the North-South axis.

You are right, Sidney. Most of the train track slums to Alabang are already 'cleared', but it will be a big relocation if Gloria wants to tackle all slums in Manila. Slums (or at least such kind of 'houses') are everywhere in Manila, even Makati has a number of them.

I'm a sociology student researching slums in this area. Can you tell me more about the problems of the people there and what the slums are like? Thanks

people along the tracks
Hope that helps since pictures tell you more than words. BTW, some of the shacks are better than others, you even find a garage for a car there. Allbest
