Jean Claude and sweeping Metro Manila and other things besides.

Jean Claude (Jean Christophe really, but Clint insisted on The Muscles from Brussels, and I followed suit) had his 0.5th birthday on October 19, and my sister had a small party for him.

Later, I went to Mando’s house to hang out and play poker. Totz was there. He had left us for Davao but was back for a few days.

The next day, I had to buy clothing suitable for places much farther from the Equator than I was used to. I passed by this woman sweeping litter off EDSA. She was kind enough to let me take pictures.

It may look like EDSA was deserted then, but it wasn’t. It never is, except maybe at 2 AM, when the vegetable delivery guy is the substitute king of the road, ruling in the absence of that perennial hard worker, the jeepney driver.

The day after that, I went to Yon’s place to get some videos he’d been editing,

That night, my friends and I were off to Baguio, ostensibly for the Samahang Pisika ng Pilipinas conference, but my only contribution in that regard was the single-minded consumption of large quantities of pineapple, which I did not pay for.
