Kalesa (Horse carriage)

-----------------( click image to enlarge )
While nursing my sore left shoulder and arm, my right hand was busy doing this....! Actually, i'm not sure if i did it right here.... I really don't remember how a Kalesa looks like, this is just how i've imagined it.... This is the taxi cab of the old days in the philippines.... The humble and undying Kalesa is still being used in some other parts of the country but mostly for tourism purposes only nowadays....


Though i believe that we've just inherited this ways of transport from the spanish era, the humble Kalesa has been and will always stay as an icon and a great symbol of the filipino culture and traditions.... =D

Ikaw pasaway ka talaga. Sumasakit na nga ang balikat mo nag-paint ka pa.

Gumagana ang creative imagination mo. O ayan, I want to see more, more, more. Joke!

Ha-ha, very boring kasi ang may-injury Red....! I still have my right hand pa man he-he....! =D

Galeng naman, kahit na masakit na ang balikat sige pa rin. Maganda pa rin ang labas. I have a book about the Philippines with pictures in it and, I think, it has a picture of a "kalesa." I'll check that one. But, I think, you got pretty close to it.

Oo nga Mari, disabled artist naman ako ngayon ha-ha....! Hindi ko talaga alam ang details ng kalesa, pero tumingin rin ako last time sa web kaya lang malabo ang mga pix nila.... Yun nga din sabi ko sa sarili ko na okay na yan medyo malapit na rin siguro dun sa itsura ng kalesa....! =D
