TIL #14 - 2019-01-15

Today I learned about how the dangerous commute by human pushed train cart works in Manila and how this form of transportation is needed by a large group of people.

This short story by BBC tells about the daily commute by a large group of people in the capital of the Phillipines - the amount of hard manual labor that is required to make a living is really something all people in the western world should think about every now and then! The danger involved is not for the faint of heart either.
