lavezares

Lavezares Street corner Barcelona Street in Binondo. A typical morning street scene in residential areas in Manila, where folks - young or old - gather in the streets and stand by (istambay) with a group of friends and neighbors discussing anything and everything under the sun :)

That is the same way it used to be up here where we live but only about 60 years ago. People would go to the store and wait for the mail truck to arrive. And they talked about everything while they waited. It was a good time and a nice way to start off the day.
