    Oh, my, goodness. You can get R.C. there! I’m sure I should commemt on the actual property, (deplorable conditions, I know) but I’m just so surprised by the billboard! I don’t drink pop anymore, but when I was a kid, it was my favorite. I don’t even know if we can get it here now.

      And it’s about 12 cents.

    The other end of the spectrum:

    This is one of the old industrial areas that has been converted into a riverside park. I go there sometimes but it’s a bit of a juggle between the subway’s repair schedule and the weather – there’s a lack of shade. Perhaps when the young trees have had time to expand a bit!

      They did something similar in my old hometown on the Colorado river. It’s very nice. There are almost no parks here in Davao- there are a couple, but not many, and not by the river because that’s dangerous and risky.

      I think for that to happen, corruption would have to end or be considerably reduced, the living standard would have to change- the poor in America live lives the lower middle class here can’t even dream about- the river would have to be cleaned up, waste disposal would need to be taken care of (our entire neighborhood has to dump our household trash in a few yard-waste sized trash bins located at either end of the road, and it often overflows), a better drainage infrastructure city wide would have to happen (at least half the city has water in their homes when we have heavy rains, which is, you know, days that end in y and in months that begin with letters of the alphabet), and probably a few other things I’m not thinking of.
