Streets and Foods, Manila, Philippines. Not a good idea? Sure it is – you will be fine. Don’t try eating these foods if you don’t know the consequences to your health. But, to look around in the streets of Manila is very interesting. Don’t use any jewelry and make sure you watch for your purse while walking around. Snatchers? Yes, it is not fun to know they are everywhere in Manila. It will be fun to have a Filipino with you who knows the area.
