Some pics of Marikina River as seen from our window. Tropical storm Ondoy has wreaked havoc in Manila. They say that in the span of 6 hours, we had a month's worth of rain! I hope the people on the roofs - you can see them if you zoom in - are safe now. From what I hear, the shanties are all gone. :( On another note, I sent a couple of these pictures to BBC earlier and a guy named Steven called me to ask about them! Probably nothing, but I was so stoked!!! For those who want to donate to disaster relief operations, you can do so with your mobile phone. Here's the info: The Red Cross Rescue and Relief Operations. Text RED amount to 2899 (Globe) and 4483 (SMART). The service only accepts the following amounts: 10, 25, 50 an d 100 (pesos). I donated and was charged 1 peso. Shout out to Globe - DONATE that fee instead!!!
