Christmas Shopping in Manila: The Long Taxi Queue

The Christmas shopping rush in the Philippines brings shoppers out of their homes and...into the malls...and back!

And 'back' means a taxi ride back home for those with no cars but with heavy shopping bags!

And these photos of shoppers queuing for a cab in front of the Landmark Department Store last rainy weekend with no taxi cab in sight would force you to call on all the saints to send all the taxi cabs to where you're waiting.

But if the saints are all busy shopping themselves, brace yourself for the long wait, as you stand there with your tired legs, your heavy shopping bags and your long Christmas list of more things to buy!

Happy shopping!
