Manila, Philippines

Flat Stanley came to visit us here in Manila, Philippines.  He is shown here with Michael & the “tricycle”  (motorcycle with a side car).  The “tricycle” is a unique but regular mode of transportation in the Philippines for short distances, usually used within the different towns.

Notice how Michael is dressed? He is now the Flat Stanley look alike!

Here are more pictures of Flat Stanley (still with Michael) with the “JEEPNEY”.  The jeepney is the most common means of public transportation in the Philippines.  It is normally fully decorated, very colorful and can carry a maximum of 20 passengers.  The jeepney is very unique to the Philippines --- when you see a jeepney you know that you are in the Philippines.
