View from a Bridge

View from a Bridge

The ugly sight of informal shanties beside the Iloilo River in Molo, Iloilo City greet tourists who pass through the Carpenters Bridge. This photo was taken from atop the bridge. Once you turn your back, you will see the splendor of the overpriced Esplanade, which is being peddled as the number one attraction of the city. This squatter colony was supposed to have been removed and relocated more than a year ago. Another example of the unfulfilled promises of the Mabilog administration.
