The “People Power” Travel Superbook: Book 35. Philippines Travel Guide (Covers the Redlight Districts)
The Philippines is a Christian, English speaking country with a population of 90 million. The Philippines is made up of 7107 islands which are subdivided down into 73 provinces along with the official capital Quezon City and the unofficial capital Manilla which has a population of 8 million people. The native tongue is Tagalog but since it was occupied by the United States until 1946, business is conducted in English and most people speak some English. Before then, the Spanish were there so there are remnants of that culture, particularly the Catholic churches. Because there are very few laws, there's noise pollution, smog, men piss in the streets anywhere, stray dogs run around, there's trash everywhere, people make open fires to burn the trash, people drive crazy and sometimes the power goes off sporadically for no reason at all. It is a little backward as far as having a good infrastructure goes. Mindanao is a dangerous place rife with civil war.
