Category: Sense of Place

Loosely translated"JUmp Over the Cow".A traditional Filipino game played on the streets of Metro Manila. It involves the players jumping over the person called the "Baka", and the main goal of the players is to successfully jump over the "Baka" without touching or falling over him/her. I was passing by the streets of Makati City when I saw this group of young boys still playing the traditional game. I was amazed as children now a days are more inclined playing computer games and play stations . I watched them play and they let me took photos as they enjoy the game

Location: Makati City, Philippines
