This is a rather odd perspecitve on Manila. Firstly it is about traffic and then history. The history part is quite interesting but very focused on the killings of Filipinos by imperial powers at various stages of the Philippine history. However former President and dictator Marcos, was not mentioned, maybe because he was himself a Filipino.
Imperial powers always leave some dark history with killing of innocent native people. But it would be interesting to see your comments on this on our Manila.PH Facebook page. Feel free to express yourself there.
Regarding the traffic matter, then I am sure that many other cities have much worse traffic situation than Manila. Cities like Mumbai, Jakarta or maybe even Tokyo.
