In UP Diliman, there's the UP Ikot and the UP Toki (the reverse route). This shot was taken along the Osmeña Avenue, on my way to the Melchor Hall (the College of Engineering).
Looks like political activism is still very much alive in UP. The jeep is on its way to Vinzon's Hall. "Ibagsak ang rehimeng Nemenzo!"
Let's go to another great campus, UPLB. Going inside the campus, means riding the jeep with the "UP College" signboard. There's also the hand signs if one needs to go to the lower (main) or the upper campus (forestry) and other surrounding agencies (IRRI, IPB, NCPC, APEC, etc.). UPLB is home to hard science courses.
The structures and designs of the jeepneys in UPLB have some great distinction compared from the usual jeepneys roaming around UP Diliman campus. Take this photo for example. The inside of this particular jeep is spaceous and comfortable. Plus, the window is really big with very minimal obstructions, so one gets more air. This jeep is on its way to the Baker Hall.
This is the Thai Pavillion, my favorite spot in UPLB. It makes the campus really look Oriental. Early May, this place will look really awesome with the fire trees and golden shower in full bloom.
I ride this steel everyday. I have two favorite spots when riding the jeep. One is in front, beside the driver's seat. It's so cosy sitting there, as long as it's just me and the driver. I pay for the other vacant seat in front if I really want it spaceous. I can see everything from that spot, plus the position of the seat is really nice for viewing. The second is located at the rear of the passengers' seats (yung pinakadulo). I am not too keen on sitting at the back of the driver because then, I have to get all the passengers' fares. It's not an obligation but you have to do it. With that particular seat comes this great responsibility. Be the assistant of the driver cum conductor. I hope, we'll be like Singpore someday. Their mode of payment in their public transportations is very efficient and systematic. Be it in taxi, train, or the bus.
Diong, if you're reading this...i would like to say an astounding 'THANK YOU' from the bottom of my heart. I received the really huge envelope early this morning. I got all your three works in tact. It really made my day! Salamat talaga. I will have them framed and put them in my art wall. :-)
