I took this photo on my way from the airport to the hotel... I just arrived to Manila and i was so surprised to see all the colorful buses all around the streets !
These jeepneys are the most used by locals, because a jeepney ride costs only between 4 to 10 pesos.
Jeepneys originated from the vehicles left by the Americans during their occupation in the Philippines. The locals modified these American jeepneys into the colorful and artistic staple of Filipino life they are today, and it also allow a liberal glimpse of pop art... :)

Hello Salma...I love this one. The bright colors against the palm trees create a nice mood. Very fitting for the extremely hot weather we have been having here in my part of the world.
I am not so sure that I like the intrusion of the second vehicle down in the lower right region of the composition, but sometimes you can't really control these things.
Best regards...I hope the summer in Saudi Arabia isn't treating you to harsh.
