Day 4 - Terrible Rest Day

After I visited Makati City, I was very tired and been walking for hours on where shall I rest within the night. What I did is I slept on the front lawn at the Cultural Center of the Philippines for an hour, what I didn't realize that I have ant bites around my lower back, maybe 2 or 3 bites. It was awful. So I need to find another place where I won't be bitten again by ants.

November 19, 2020 / 12:30 am. I found an abandoned convenience store and made a bed using the benches, so I was able to get some sleep for a few hours. The only problem is I'm not able to sleep peacefully because of the sounds, of incoming cars, motorbikes, endless emergency sirens. This is the first time I slept outside of the streets, and I feel the hardships of every hobo or a stranded individual out there.

Around 4 am, I woke up and walked around the bay. Tried to sleep again, maybe an hour then walked around the bay again and took some photos. As I was walking along Manila Bay, I'm now thinking of what will be my next city to visit. As soon as I reached Luneta Park, backpacks are not allowed. So I was pissed off, and head back to my last location. Now, I decided to ride a jeepney back to Buendia, checked my phone for any remaining funds on my eWallet and also on my account.

At around 8:30 am, I checked in at a motel, took a hot steamy shower, and slept throughout the day. This is a lesson learned for me as a beginner who wants to wander around. What will be the next city I'm going to visit?

Yes. Another valuable lesson for me since I'm getting used to long walks. If you feel tired, learn to rest. Find another way to get to your destination.

I learned my lesson out there, and just want to experience how it is to sleep outside.
