1:43 Datsun 240Z Safari Rally

Saturday morning, I went to The University of the Philippines because I think its the nearest place from where I am that has wide open spaces. I planned going around 7am but overslept and arrived there around 8:30am. Good thing clouds were abundant so to filter out the strong light.

But there where only a few nice spaces available, you can't park anywhere, specially in the main roads, and roaming security made it hard for me to find a perfect spot. The grassy areas also where wet because it rained in the early mornings. I might come back around March and look for other areas there.

A big thanks to Eddie for the inspiration!
