Today I rode in a Jeepney!! My Philippines Adventure

Today I rode in a Jeepney in Bacolod City.

For people who are not familiar, Jeepneys are approximately a cross between rugged army jeeps and mini school buses. There are two bench seats on either side which extend from behind the driver’s seat to the back bumper.

I am 5-9, and I felt overly tall in it… like a man riding in a dwarf car. The reason I felt overly tall is because I had to bend over to walk inside of it. When I was bent over, with my knees bent, my back still kept hitting the roof of the Jeepney. The price was really reasonable. For three of us it cost 20PH, or 50 cents in America. So now the thrill is gone. I have finally ridden in a Jeepney.
