About your host

I teach Sociology at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines. Growing up in Manila, it is my dream to make people fall in love with the quirks of the city. I have been bringing friends to walk around the city since 2010. I highlight the intersections of history, society, and everyday life through food and structures.
