Manila, Mindoro, Quezon City, Payatas Dump Site (Smoky Mountain), Quezon City Slums

A dump site called Smoky Mountain, steaming with smells and gases from rotting trash. People call Smoky Mountain their home, harvesting the garbage and trying to have a normal life. Shacks are set up on the trash from 11 million people. Manila: Getting the worst haircut ever by a Philippine Drag Queen. I looked like a Beatle in the 60’s.
