On My Way To the Airport---A Quick Manila Tour

Since we were anticipating the usual Morning traffic in Metro Manila, my dad decided to take a more scenic route on our way to the airport. Instead of going through EDSA, he drove all the way to Manila from Quezon City in order to reach the airport. It was a circuitous way but it was more fun and fulfilling.

I took these pictures while being a front seat passenger and using my Samsung Galaxy S Duos phone which has a 5-megapixel camera. 
I just adjusted the camera setting to the Sports mode in order to at least have good results.

I actually had a pleasant time taking these pictures since it took me back to my childhood days when my dad and mom would drive us around the city while telling us the various histories of the places that we visited. It's nice to sometimes take a step back and just enjoy the ride. Happy memories!
