  THE POVERTY OF TONDO
by rdw66
 
 

WHEN ME AND RUDY HAD A LOAD OF PIGS TO TRANSPORT WE'D LEAVE CALABANGA AND HEAD FOR MANILA. THE STOCK YARDS WERE IN THE TONDO AREA. THE SMELL WOULD GAG A MAGGOT. BUT SEEING THE PEOPLE LIVING IN SUCH A STATE OF POVERTY. IT MADE MY HEART ACHE. SHACKS BUILT FROM PIECES OF SCRAP METAL, CARDBOARD, BRICK. STAGNENT WATER AND RAW SEWAGE IN THE STREET. I SO HOPE IT'S BETTER NOW,
