Filipino Driver's License

Well, after four years here, I took the plunge and got my driver's license today. You need to understand driving here is nothing like USA driving.
When we first moved here it looked so confusing and frustrating; but there really is a rhythm and rhyme to the flow (or non-flow) of the traffic - - you just need to remember not to be in a hurry going anywhere!!!!

Another angle of the LTO area. Thankfully, I was guided through the
process by a wonderful Filipino colleague who handles government
document issues for our organization. The whole process took about
three hours.
